A recent group of viruses have been released which put systems at risk. These viruses exploit vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer and Outlook. These viruses destroy data on the local systems and leak personal information. The viruses targeting Microsoft Outlook are particularly dangerous because they only require the recipient to open the email message in order to execute.

Anyone running Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7 should download the following patch and install it immediately, to patch the vulnerabilities being exploited .


1. Click on this link

2. On the resulting web page, click the "Download" button.

3. A dialog box will pop up (you may need pop-ups enabled). Start the installation immediately by clicking the "Open" button. The installation takes less then 4 minutes, runs in the background, and does not require a reboot.

Thank you,
The Microsoft Security Team
