I think that's more a problem for network spreading of a worm like slammer
or email virus than it is for a virus that infects files you might store on
a memory stick. Typically that type of virus spread would be delayed long
enough that AV should be updated already. But yes, what you suggest is a
possibility.

However, I wasn't saying this is how you create a "secure" network, I was
just trying to point out one way to deal with the laptop issue. They aren't
trusted systems, don't put them on the trusted network segments.
