I have to disagree. While it is unlikely for someone to target this platform generally, it is certainly vulnerable to a targeted attack from a group or individual who knows what they're doing. Java and Flash are the most obvious vectors, but as an OS that hasn't been supported in years and lacks general security tools, it's extremely vulnerable.

It's just not trivial for a run of the mill script kiddie or likely to be targeted by those casting a wide net.
