Microsoft warns of fake security alert
Contributed by: SHA, at 4/10/2005 11:57:00 AM.

The bogus instructions purport to tell the software maker's customers how best to handle the dreaded Blaster computer worm that hit this week
The fake Microsoft e-mail, first spotted early Friday, looks "very official," said Sean Sundwall, Microsoft spokesman. The fake e-mail includes instructions to check Microsoft's security Web site for a software patch and updates. It also suggests steps that home computer users should take to protect their systems from Blaster, a widespread worm that was programmed to attack a Microsoft Web site Saturday.
Sundwall said the e-mail attachment attempts to unleash a "Trojan horse" that infects one computer, then attempts to e-mail itself to other machines. He said it's not clear at this point what specific damage the code tries to inflict.
The way to spot the fake, Sundwall said, is that the e-mail contains an attachment.
"And we absolutely never send e-mail with attachments," Sundwall said. "Most reputable companies would never send an attachment about something of that nature. If you see one, you know it's a hoax."
