Warning over fake Windows update

A BBC News post warns: "Users are being warned to watch out for a fake Microsoft security update. Circulating as an e-mail the fake message points people at a bogus website that claims to host critical security updates. But anyone downloading from the site will get a virus installed that opens a backdoor into their computer the program's creators can exploit."

In general, it is no longer safe to download any software by following a link from email. Too bad.
