Lastnight it was warned that a Microsoft Internet Security Update is a virus.

The bogus email has been encouraging users worldwide, since earlier this week, to download an attachment named 'q216309.exe', which leaves a virtual door open to hackers on your computer system.

Although the risk assessment is low, I thought everybody would like to know!

No, sorry... I should've made it more clearer... it's just information on the virus.
