Yup, as I found out once when running a Win 2000 no SP VPC session on
my laptop about five or so years ago at my aunt's house. She had no
firewall system. I saw this bizarre screen coming up and I thought
"Wow, that's Windows messenger spam. I've never seen one before"
(Not the same as MSN/Live Messenger)
Then I realized that there are viruses that hit non firewalled Win
2000 systems with no SPs. I quickly unplugged the cable. And yes
that Win 2000 VPC had three viruses on it. All within 10 minutes of
starting it up.
