Unprotected PCs will be attacked instantly

An unprotected PC that connects to the Internet can be hacked in
minutes, and used together with other hacked machines to dispense
spam, conduct denial-of-service attacks or carry out identity-theft
scams. That was the finding of a test conducted by USA TODAY and
Avantgarde, a San Francisco tech marketing and design firm. Several
"honeypot" computers were set up in order to trap hackers, with
monitoring in place to see what traffic they would attract. Former
hacker Kevin Mitnick was hired as a security consultant to perform the
experiment.

"It's a hostile environment out there. Attackers have become extremely
indiscriminate." - Kevin Mitnick.
