Malware Alert

This “important WINDOWS” update” showed up in my email in-basket Saturday and, based on the text, punctuation and the fact that the purported sender was “windows.com” instead of Microsoft, it’s a safe bet that it’s malware.

My recommendation? If it arrives in your email, ignore>delete.

Thanks. I saw this the other day. Let's hope these guys never learn to use proper grammar and punctuation.

Children at play? No, they want to do you harm. Ever wonder what happens in their twisted brains to make them want to cause people so much pain?

Mac users don't have to deal with this crap. Windows keep saying Apple's days of being exempt from viruses are numbered, but how does saying that lessen the fact that Windows users have always been under attack and always will be?
