Microsoft never sends patches through email.  It is likely a worm.  See the

Subject: [Dshield] Microsoft Patch

Did anyone else recieve an email from microsoft with an attached exe
containing the latest security patch?

With the ease that email headers can be faked I'm surprised M$ would send
out an attachment like this via email.  Imagine how easy it would be to send
out a fake email with malware attached!

Has anyone tried to fake emails from M$ in the past?
