I checked the Microsoft site, no hint of that update number....sure
seems like it might be a virus to me.

From my understanding, Microsoft will not email you about patches that
are available.

Wonder how many were sucked into that one. The links are real, but if I was
a patch or an update, I go to the microsoft site. I do not down load
patches from news groups

this was reported, even on the evening news, at least a month ago in the uk
all updates from ms come via the update system - ie you logon to them or you
run the auto updater, also acquired direct from the ms site

100 percent virus. I have gotten 60 plus infected emails in this last go
round. Be nice if these people would get a life and real job instead of
causing others trouble. They were nice enough to send there crap to more
than one group also. How thoughtful of the virus scum that they are.

Aren't there also similar viruses that are sent by email?

There have been a large number of people "bombed" with
huge numbers of these viruses. I got roughly 1000 of them last
Friday, I know of others who had 4-5000. There are various
titles, like "MS security patch", "Inet security patch", sneaky ones
like "Undelivered mail", etc.

Attachment size is between about 142k and156k, so imagine the
level of net traffic involved! Thank goodness for mailwasher.

Because of the size, and that this is a worm, DO NOT "bounce"
the messages, just delete them. Bouncing is pointless, and just
contributes to the net traffic problem.

As someone else said, Microsoft have stated they _never_
distribute via e-mail, you have to go to their site to download.
_Anything_ (pretty well) claiming to be from Microsoft is bogus.

Regards
Ian

Shoot, this is the most activity I have seen in a while within this
newsgroup. Guess IWILL products are so good that there is nothing bad to be
said (at least my KK266 plus R) ;-) bout the only problem I have run across
is I cant install sp4 for win2k...
