I know not many use this, but I talk to a few people using these two services and transfer files/started an audio session before. I use AIM mostly, and The Direct IM feature when I look at netstat I see connections only through the actual AIM server through the PID, does that mean that if someone wanted to hack me that they would not be able to since they're connected through the server apparently?

and I'm not talking about sending a file/picture with a virus.
