    Any Infomation???

    Some users are receiving the following email in my office, I can't find any information on this, has anyone here got any comments or info on this:

    You are receiving this message because you are using Genuine Microsoft Software and your e-mail address has been subscribed to the Microsoft Windows Update mailing list.

    A new 0-day vulnerability has appeared in the wild and was reported for the first time Monday, June 18th. The vulnerability affects machines running MICROSOFT OUTLOOK and allows an attacker to take full control of the vulnerable computer if the exploitation process is succesfull.
    Since then, more than 100,000 machines have been reported as exploited and used to promote spammy pharmacy products such as viagra and cialis.

    An update has been released to fix this issue and can be downloaded from the following link :

    Sounds like a link to something that's malicious. There is no Q article for KB863892

    What's the actual URL (see it in non-HTML form) for the Windows update link?

    Dont let them click.

    I can find nothing either...
    Your search - KB863892 - did not match any documents.

    Suggestions:
    Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    Try different keywords.
    Try more general keywords.
    KB resolves to nothing...

    although the link looks legit???...broken though...did you do that?

    Whats the header??

    MSOUTRC2007Update-KB863892.exe

    They would never name an exe that. It would be Update-KB863892.exe or just KB863892.exe
