...just so that we're all clear, the following email is NOT from Microsoft and there is NO PATCH in the attached zip file.  DELETE it immediately.  It's likely the virus it's trying to save you from or it's a worm or trojan or some other kind of crap that you absolutely DO NOT want on your computer.

ATTENTION!
Antivirus vendors are warning of a new variant of the "Sober" virus discovered today that can delete the hard disk.

Protection:
Download and read the zipped patch. It's very easy to install!

Thanks for your cooperation!

Microsoft NEVER, EVER, EVER sends out patches in emails.  And not to put too fine of a point on it, I'm pretty sure Microsoft wouldn't say something as stupid as “delete the hard disk“.  They may say other tremendously stupid things from time to time, but not that.  <g>
