If a user can send packets to another user, then they can affect that user.
Obviously. I'm talking about the case where "A"'s service should not be affected if "B" is attacking "C".
Yes, then shared vs. dedicated capacity makes a difference, but the real focus here is protecting "C", who is being attacked by "B", who doesn't even know that he's attacking anyone because his computer is infected.
