I would say the problem is more that his system is configured to allow any 
servers without explicit authorisation.  That could just as easily have been 
a trojan or rootkit opening a port.  Best to setup your firewall to block all 
incoming connections by default, and explicitly allow only what your system 
is actually serving, and only to machines it needs to serve.
