You know if you have the extension NoScript installed on Firefox, then this really isn't a threat at all. Not to mention the additional layers of protection like a Router,Firewall (with Stealth tech), Spybot, Spywareblaster & a good AV has...
Between all of these layers it's really hard to get into someones computer.
Most Hackers won't even bother because there's so many other computers out there that aren't near as secure...
