Default iTunes backup

If you accidentally shared your app data on a p2p network wnd that's where your apple backup is stored. Could someone use that code to get to your iPhone content

Default Re: iTunes backup

Data from iTunes backups can be extracted. I've extracted text messages from them for example. Can't imagine under what scenario you would have shared the entire appdata folder on an untrusted network, but the answer to your question is yes.
