In General

Virus : For the last two days, I have been receiving mails from Microsoft with subject lines like “Your password” and “Re:query on support”. The body of the mail would always contain only one line… “All information on the attachment”. This looks pretty suspicisous and my suspicison was confirmed when I read today’s news item in Reuters. This is actually a computer worm that disguises itself as an e-mail from Microsoft and when the attachment is opened, the worm copies itself to the Windows folder, scoops up e-mail addresses from the hard disk and starts sending itself out.

I kinda feel sorry for Microsoft. Even if Microsoft genuinely sends out support mails, people will be wary of opening them.
