Virus question

Is it possible to send a virus to someone using just their IP address?

(Obviously I don't intend to do this, I just had it threatened to me online, I was just curious because it doesn't sound feasible)

If it is, its probably not the best idea to publish how to do it!

Thanks

I could be wrong but I would say no, what with the majority of ISP's using dynamic ip's anyway.
I dont mind being corrected though.

Why would someone threaten that?

I would ignore said people these sad acts were common place few years back when i trolled various chat rooms throughout the online world, seems they are still around.
