Why do you call this a fake?

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Beaware from fake Update ...

And if you think it's a fake, why did you include the URL?

How did you receive this, as an e-mail or as part of the MS / Windows Update system? If you received it as an e-mail, I agree that it's questionable. If it came in via the Update process, why do you say it's fake?

Definitely a fake!

by wahnula In reply to Beaware from fake Update ...

I send out one all-staff email a week warning never to click a link in an unsolicited message or EVER open an attachment. We're a small shop and I get at least a dozen of these a week on my own PC. Staff gets a similar amount, although we do have spam filtering it still helps to be proactive and remind your users about these scams. It's better to be a nag than a repairman!
