The point being that a hacker who can get into the system at all

Yes, back in the 1990s, a default install (from, say, Red Hat) would have twenty services running, ten of which would have remote holes. So you could assume that any system is effectively multi-user. Those days are gone (I would hope). If you're a desktop user, you shouldn't have any open ports.
