Not 100% true. Your computer is relatively safe as long as it's behind NAT or a firewall. Most routers nowadays run on NAT by default. However if you have many computers within the same LAN and your Windows7 box manages to get infected, then it can and will bomb the other computers on the LAN with worms and other attacks.Typically yes, but not always. As long as the PC is connected to a network that has access to the internet, it is vunerable, no matter the OS or browser for that matter.
