Listening to port when no IP address is assigned

Hi Pals
Consider a case where the network interface is there and it is connected to a network.
Only thing left here is I need to set a static ip/ip though dhcp (though ifconfig)
I heard that it is possible to listen even if the ip address is not set. So is there any possibility of an attack over network?

eventhought it doesnt have ip , it's mac is still obvious to be exploited using mac flooder.
