magicjack security issues

I've read a couple of reviews on the internet from people that have used the magicjack telephone system on their computers where they claim that after a time (1 to 5 months) their computer becomes overrun with viruses and trojans despite having valid windows xp pro and firewall plus virus protection. I contacted magicjack and asked them about security issues with magicjack and they deny there being any.

 

I would like to use mine, but am now fearful. I do have norton internet security 2008 on my pc. Am I fully protected while using magicjack on my pc; or does it provide security issues to the system which no one has addressed?

Re: magicjack security issues

Another review on magicjack blames the usb port connection used by magicjack as responsible for backdooring viruses and trojans. Is it possible for this to happen with norton internet security 2008 running on one's pc while using magicjack?

I think this thread needs to be posted on the NIS/NAV2009 forums for better exposure.
