    Perhaps, you will receive an e-mail from security@microsoft.com (cheating) :cool:
    You must not believe it and you must delete it. This e-mail has a few malicious codes.
    Your antivirus software must detect it, please check your antivirus updates.

    E-mail message;

    From: security@microsoft.com

    Subject: Alert! New Sober Worm!

    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!
