  • Important email scam warning

    I wouldnt normally post a scam but this one is very good and I can see a lot of people getting caught out

    Guys if you get the email below in your mailbox delete it, dont open it or follow the link

    Microsoft dont send out updates by email,


    if you follow the link expect some trouble, this is one of the best I have seen for a while and made me think a bit, to the naked eye it looks legit, it looks just like the microsoft update page, sadly the download isnt, its a script that will cause some exploits to your pc and you will join the list of millions sending mail out to others.

    its only when you hover over the link if your quick you will notice it actually takes you to Ferrateu.net

    When I checked it out yesterday it resolves to Russian Ukranian Block, but the site itself was returning an SQL error no doubt overloaded with people downloading

    I have made the link below safe

    The real link is this

    //update.microsoft.com.ferrateu.net/microsoftofficeupdate/isapdl/666/default.aspx?ln=en-us&id=63092100575829140663194433368705625051174550 069280057880772309162313454146">http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftofficeupdate/isapdl/default.aspx?ln=en-us&id=63092100575829140663194433368705625051174550 069280057880772309162313454146</a><br>
