Microsoft never send this kinds of emails. even non technical users know
that any email containing a .exe attachment should not be opened. Especially
if it comes from Microsoft.
Spoofing the "from" field in an email is not an innaccessible skills.

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?
