yes. If staff or students really wanted to they can create a hyperlink in word and read the entire contents of our netlogon shares, there's probably a hundred other bits of software floating around that can do it too. About the worst thing that I think could happen (and correct me if i'm wrong) is that they could fill up their home drives if they decided to copy it all. not really a big deal IMO.

Perhaps you could deny groups of computers (rather than users) accessing the shares?
We firewall non-domain machines from accessing certain shares.
