I received a broadcast message from MS regarding the above security patch w/ an attached pack5251.exe. Can anyone confirm if it is legit? All I could find was a March 2004 patch on their website which makes me a bit suspicious.
Thanks, Nick.

Microsoft Does NOT send executables through emails. Your best bet is to use Windows Update to get recent security fixes. Delete that email immediately. For more information about Microsft Security related messges, goto the link below.

Hope that helps.

LMAO are you the guy that sends earthlink, comcast and bellsouth your credit card information through e-mail because they asked for it?

Nobody of legitamit corporate use has ever solicited through e-mail unless you asked for it. No one has ever sent anything from a company unless you have asked for it....

If you receive something, didn't ask for it... Guess what? lol

Here is the link to the April 2004 security bulliten:

(Remove any spaces from the pasted link)

There are 4 different updates depending on the version of Windows and other software you are running.

Microsoft DOES NOT send ANY patches as attachments.

They do have security bulletins and newsletters that you can subscribe to.

Note: There have been several postings here over the past 3 days of problems with the updates.
Proceed with caution.
