I have had to deal with 3 windows XP machines now, including my brothers that have had serious security breaches using the internet connection sharing wizard on broadband, whilst I cant be sure this was the direct cause for the breach it is highly likely it was either this or the lack of firewall. I would therefore recommend that everyone who uses this feature find an alternative and at the very least they have a secure firewall enabled and working correctly. note, they were using the ICS firewall supplied with XP, so this to is insufficient
