Spam Warning – Update : PDLCBXGYGM

Ok here’s one spam email that is doing the rounds and even almost managed to fool a guy I know who would be considered a geek. Now the reason it almost got him is that the english is pretty well presented in the email, the information sounds very plausable. Sometimes with spam spelling and grammar can be quite bad,  but occasionally they get it almost right.

In the email below what they cleverly do is make you think that the link is actually ok to use by calling it a ‘private secure new link’

I’ll be honest this is one of those you need to know how Microsoft do things to know that they wouldn’t issue a link that wasn’t direct on their site or through the windows update software, which makes this email a very clever and dangerous spam email.

If there is an email that talks about updates from Microsoft always try the windows update first or the actual Microsoft website, they won’t send you an actual email unless you’re on some partner program, but that would be easy to know if it’s a real email as it will come from a much more obvious address and have proper links to their website.

Another sign is the jumbled up letters at the bottom, a real email from them wouldn’t have this, I’m not quite sure why it’s there, but if you know leave a comment for us all please.


Security update

When necessary, Microsoft provides a new security update on the second Tuesday of each month and publishes a bulletin to announce the update.

Occasionally, updates are released more often.
