I suppose a determined hacker could get into any machine if they wanted to Immortal?
From my personal experience, though, I've not been hacked and have run SETI@home since July 2001. For about 18months I've had cable modem connection
too - and both my machines run SETI@home 24/7 without difficulty.
I *do* have a firewall and updated AVP, and run Ad-Aware too, of course but, if someone wanted to "hack", then I guess they would??
But, I want to crack those WU's!! Go team ATS!!
