I have a really old PC (IBM Aptiva 2137, CPU:AMD K6 300MHz, 160MBs of RAM and 250GBs HDD) I want to turn this PC into a dedicated torrent box and nothing else.
Inside of this machine there is no other thing than the motherboard, power supply, LAN adapter and a 250GBs HDD, all running under Windows XP Pro 32 +SP3.
Because of physical RAM restrictions, I've no antivirus nor antispyware on this PC, the only security is the windows firewall and nothing more!.
Note That I won't be using this machine for websurfing or installing/testing any other apps than uTorrent and a simple VNC app to manage it remotely.
Only torrenting nothing else!
Is there any chance that this computer could get INFECTED by any virus, malware, spyware if this PC is only connected to download Torrent files???
Keep in mind that the downloaded torrents won't be executed or extracted and installed on this machine.
Thanks in advance for your reponses.
