Will A Virus Use The Phone?

Hi,
I have two computers, each being hooked up to the internet via the phone and modem.  They are both plugged into a telephone splitter that holds about 5 phones and then into the wall jack.  One of the computers recently became infected with a virus (Win32.KillApp)  I have not ran the other computer at the same time anymore because I do not know if it is possible for the clean computer to become infected with the same virus merely by both being online at the same time.  
Is it possible ?  They are not hooked up together as in 'home networking' just on the same splitter that goes into the wall jack for the phone.
Thank you for any info!!

Just being online is the risk.

Anyway Win32.KillApp is an AV killer, but it's quite simple to cleanup:

Stop this process:

trojan.win32.killapp.c.exe

And delete the file, in Safe Mode if necessary.
