The Windows box that just got infected from a floppy disk, CD, or other media,
and it is inside your firewall (if you have one). Of course, if all your
systems are embedded, or have no network connections, then there is no
attacker in the traditional sense.
However, SELinux can provide more protection than that, perhaps even
preventing a bug in the code that's running from blowing away critical files,
for a possible (even if not probable) example.
