I might be as old as you, I do remember those 'stoned' viruses, though I cannot back my post up with any facts, just opinion and speculation, I'd say on the whole, yes, it is.
Purely because there are so many ways online that you can have your identity (credit cards etc..) stolen, weak passwords and so on. Yes there are some who would say 'that's your own fault' but then ask, youeself, why is it neccessary? People that spend all their time writing scripts or guessing every word they can think of to try and break into your (insert medium here)
So yes it is a risk IMO purely because there are people out there that have nothing better to do than ruin what is a useful tool for everyone else.
Sorry if I'm off topic, I may have strayed.
