Oh yes, very vulnerable. I also use the coffee shop WiFi regularly, but I got a really bad trojan virus that almost destroyed all the data in my netbook.

I now scan, scan and scan for viruses constantly in order to avoid letting a virus "brew" in my computer and give it the time to destroy my hard drive. Nice article!
