Talking Bogus Microsoft Patches

Quote:
.........
The claim is that the executable file contains patches for vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, three widely used products with a history of serious security bugs.

The file is actually an executable for a variant of W32.Pinfi, a memory-resident polymorphic virus capable of replicated via mapped drives and network shares.

The Pinfi virus, also known as Pate or Parite, has been programmed to infect every PE and SCR file on every drive and network share.

It targets users of Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Me.
