Demo of Windows XP being hacked within 6 minutes on unsecured WiFi

At an online security demo this week in the UK, a government and industry sponsored group demonstrated how easy it is to hack into Windows XP if connected to an unsecured WiFi network. They got into the machine as far as being able to run commands from the command line within just 6 minutes. Microsoft apparently commented saying the demo was ‘enlightening and frightening’. Quite why they sound so surprised I have no idea.
