Hello all,

We have a large multi-site instance of WP 3.3.1 and although you can make your WordPress site private to individual named accounts (e.g. try accessing http://sites.tufts.edu/dgtest) it's really only the posts and pages content that is private. Any content uploaded to the sites Media Library (e.g. documents, images, audio etc) is still publicly accessible (e.g. try accessing: http://sites.tufts.edu/dgtest/wp-content/blogs.dir/856/files/2012/03/FCKeditor.png).

Has anyone come across a solution that will provide privacy to the media library files?
