There have been several worms masquerading as patches emailed from MS.  MS has never mass emailed a patch that I am aware of.  I
sure wouldn't run the "patch".

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?
