Virus Masquerading as Microsoft E-Mail -  A new mass-mailing virus is on the loose on the Internet, this one masquerading as a message from Microsoft Corp. about a cumulative security patch. Known as either Swen or Gibe, the virus arrives in an e-mail message with a subject line of "Microsoft Critical Patch" and an executable attachment.

See the email

[Reminder: Microsoft NEVER sends emails with attachments to general users.]
