    I'm sure this question has been answered but I cannot find it.

    Let's say I have several user accounts - and I'm currently working in one of them. Will a user account that is not currently active - but protected by FileVault - be accessible to a hacker who has gained access to my network? Thanks in advance for any help.

    AFAIK, FileVault is now a complete disk encryption so everything on the disk will be protected.
