Just today I received the email below claiming to be a Microsoft Security Update.  Click on the image below to see it enlarged and take a look at a few tell-tale signs it is not from us:

 

1) Look at the reply to email.  Even though they have it sound like a Microsoft name, the email resolves to a domain that it not Microsoft at all

 

2) Microsoft NEVER SENDS ATTACHMENTS out for our security updates or patch notifications!  If you see an email with an attachment, like the one below, you know it is not from us.

 

Please immediately delete any message like this and tell your friends and colleagues to do the same to help protect them as well.

 

 

 

Just a friendly reminder from your Microsoft Small Business Community Team.

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
