Emails to beware of

A reader sends a heads up about a recent email that claims to be from Microsoft’s Program Security Center. It looks pretty legit.

DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENT ON ANY EMAIL LIKE THIS. Microsoft DOES NOT send patches out via email. Ever.

Keep your system up to date by using Windows Update. Or avoid Microsoft software altogether.

Here’s the e-mail.

Okay, I’m not really suggesting that you actually avoid Microsoft software altogether.
