It was truly lucky that they still used USB ports and Windows XP.

XP SP3 was Universally robust. Get it? "Universe"-ally?

The plot of Piers Anthony's novel, Macroscope, is centered around an alien signal called The Destroyer, because it jammed all other signals from the stars and destroyed the minds of any who attempted to view it.

Like an alien AI could even operate on our (relatively) crappy computer systems.

I thought of the Cylon virus which "shut off" the Colonial Fleet. But they needed a hot looking insider to do that.

In one of my nerdy rpg games (Eclipse phase) they talk vaguely about a visual image being the contagion source for a virus that hacks the human mind.  Obviously scifi but who knows what an advanced intelligence would be capable.

So do I need McAfee, Norton, or will Windows Defender be enough to stop this alien onslaught?  Don't want any pesky aliens getting my tax information.

New computers can communicate with older technology.., just not vice versa.

There is talk of quantum computers we have built today being capable of breaking conventional encryption (SHA-256 etc). An advanced race could decrypt radio waves in real time (WiFi, 4G / 5G etc) and send their own data to your network, like a virus. They could easily write code to disable devices.., or even send false messages from anyone to anyone or even affect the stock market.
