If we allow a home user to connect to his work PC using PC Anywhere,
is there ANY risk of infecting the network?

For example, what if the home user is infected with the blaster virus
(or some other worm or virus)?

Could the home user infect our corporate network if we only open the
two PC Anywhere ports, and allow the infected home user to remotely
control his work pc?

All thoughts very much appreciated,
Thanks,
Mike
