if you *REALY* paranoid  you can  juct  switch  your computer  off :)

if you are  fully trust  your local area network there is  no  reaseon to
afraid (but passwords) , othervice there is  some  'pantom menace'
that  ssh could  de cracked by someone  , who will dump all the
connections to your  computer  all the  time
