Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/27/2005 09:17:00 PM.

Windows users beware of a fake e-mail message intended to fool the users to download a trojan, when they think they are trying to patch up their system.

Here is the context of the email.

From: Microsoft INC
To: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: MS Windows/Critical Error
Attachment: "MsWindowsUpdate.rar"

Dear Sir/Madam,

We kindly ask you to install this update to your PC as soon as possible.

In the libraries of OS Windows® critical errors have been found. This errors lead to destruction of the system files from your computer without an opportunity on restoration. The given service-pack fixes libraries and does not allow various Trojan modules to penetrate into your computer.

Yours Faithfully,

Microsoft INC

The Rar contained an executable called "MsWindowsUpdate.exe".
