If the clients are fully protected by firewalls, anti-virus software, are up
to date on all patches, etc., it isn't going to be a problem.  But let's say
you have a remote worker working from home, connected with a cable modem or
DSL, and one or more of the above is not true.  Any worm, trojan, virus,
exploit, etc. that can get to their system then has a path into your LAN
through the VPN.
