Yes it is a bit of a security risk. I disbled the authetication of the Synology folders (samba shares) like this:
vi /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf [global] # security=user security=share # passdb backend=smbpasswd [home] # valid users=%U [movies] # invalid users=nobody,nobody # valid users=nobody,guest,@users,admin,nobody [photos] # invalid users=nobody,nobody # valid users=nobody,guest,@users,admin,nobody /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S80samba.sh restart
The effect is that you will mount the home folder with the username you are logged into on your computer. <- this is the idea but I can’t seem to get it to work..
But the username and password authentication is no more for the folders Photos, Music, Movies, etc.
Another sideeffect: “Backup and Restore” and Filestation does not seem to work anymore due to the changed access rights. I don;t want to figure this out, takes to much time *sighs*
