When her PC becomes part of a bot net, it will likely be used remotely to attack other PC's and servers, probably with out your knowledge until you get a nasty letter from your ISP.

Around here, they don't mess around with "nasty letters."  They simply 'red flag' your account (turn off the web service).

Had it happen to me, a few years ago.  Somebody hacked my LAMP stack and was bouncing XXX spam off my mail server.

When I ran a packet sniffer against it, the traffic was so heavy it was practically useless.  Not cool!  ::)
