    Actually the firewall doesn't matter as these messenger windows are created by a script running on a local machines' web browser.

    In other words your PC has messenger service running. you view a web site with a naughty script. the script runs on your machine and does the net send. the only thing required on your end is that your machine can run the script on the web site whether it be vbs, wsh, js, bat ,cmd, pl, etc..

    really with all the vulnerabilities in most web browsers it is amazing the kind of stuff you can get them to do with the right tools..
