What would happen with an icq client if you do something like this under linux

nc targer.ip port < /dev/hda or /dev/zero

any ideas about this

I have noticed that when you do this with windows XP on port 5000 , the target machine crashes after a period of time (cos the system gets out of resources )

My 2nd system is now *****ed up so i cant install icq on it to try it out
