If your files are available via HTTP(S), this means that anybody can access them. We just have to guess valid URLs. Where can we find plenty of existing URLs? In search engines of course!

If you really need to share sensitive data, encrypt the files! You should also consider looking at secure cloud file sharing options such as ftopia.
