Don’t download IE7 via. unsolicited email

Do not touch the latest version of Internet Explorer 7.0 when the download is advertised via unsolicited emails. “Look out for email messages that urges users to download the latest version of Internet Explorer 7.0. The email seems to be sent from admin@microsoft.com in order to make it look legitimate. The download link ‘Download the latest version Internet Explorer 7.0’ points to a [malicious] URL,” revealed LS Pekka, Lavasoft Research. “Downloading this malware file to the system results in for example additional downloads of malware onto the infected system, in this case the Rogue application Antivirus XP 2008.”
