    OK - so now that I am completely locked out of LMS, can any one tell a non-techie how to get into it so that I can disable the password? I am running LMS on a Synology Diskstation, with a SBTouch/iPeng/Macbook as my player. I have closed the relevant ports on my router, but I still get the password screen when I try to log in via a my Mac.

    You'll have to shut down LMS, and edit its server.prefs file. Where
    exactly that file is stored you better ask in a Synology specific
    thread. There are prefs for authorize and username. Remove those lines
    and restart LMS.

    Other server options for external access of music.

    Quick somewhat OT question.

    Are other music serves such as Younity, Subsonic, Plex also as easily susceptible to attack?

    I currently have SB for internal use and Plex for external use.

    Anything that is open to the internet must be considered a risk.
    You need to check the forums for Plex etc as general advice won't be good enough. My understanding of subsonic is that it was designed for remote streaming but I'd still check.
    The best solution is a VPN (not pptp) with solid credentials.
    Pi3 with piCoreplayer music on QNAP TS419p via NFS iThingys/iPeng/Tablets/Jogglers
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 - > Celestion Ditton F20s
    Office - Pi -> Sony TA FE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN 755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - SB Touch -> Topping TP21 -> AKG Headphones
