no but if a person uses internet explorer it has a security hole over
two years old that allows real time decryption of encrypted traffic.

if a person uses windows/IE anyone can take control of their computer
and find out whatever they like. just as if they were sitting in front
of it. a firewall is not going to help. all it requires is for the
person to view a web page or an email.

IE has a lot of "silent delivery and installation of an executable"
security holes. yet another one was discovered last week.
