Update for Microsoft Outlook / Outlook Express (KB910721)

You’ve seen the mail, you’ve looked at the headers, you realise that mail from Microsoft typically does not route through a Brazilian ADSL line (times may be bad, but hey!)

You may be wondering why, even though you chose not to register with Microsoft when you booted up for the first time, even though you’re using an Ubuntu machine, you’re getting mail from Redmond asking you to upgrade.

Sophos calls it Troj/Spy-CU.

I call it a scammy, spammy, malware waste of bandwidth…

But you knew that already…
