I think that the only way that we would find out if aliens would indeed be felled by such things as the common cold or influenza would be if they actually invaded and attacked earth with the idea of taking us over. Another way would be if they set up an embassy here on earth and lived here on earth for a number of days/weeks/months/years. A third possibility exists of how they could be defeated. This is an idea from the movie, 'Independence Day', in which we communicated by old morse code with other military units around the world and screwed up the aliens defensive force fields by uploading computer viruses into their systems, which caused it to crash.

Bioweaponry I can see it being used as a alternative to wipe out a mass population without the after effects of radiation, if the population is dead then the government or people who used the bio weapon might have an immunity to it or cure and then swoop in burn the bodies of the dead and take over the area.
