Just today I've received three separate emails from gidccznrainhzqt@bulletin.msn.com with a Microsoft header and logo and an official-looking Microsoft HTML document which says the following (logo and all):

Microsoft Client

this is the latest version of security update, the "September 2003, Cumulative Patch" update which eliminates all known security vulnerabilities affecting MS Internet Explorer, MS Outlook and MS Outlook Express. Install now to continue keeping your computer secure from these vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could allow an attacker to run executable on your computer. This update includes the functionality of all previously released patches.

This update applies to MS Internet Explorer, version 4.01 and later
MS Outlook, version 8.00 and later

Just a little info for all

Microsoft do not send out emails or notes to upgrade to anyone. Any such message *from* them will be fake.
