Red alert updating windows live
Message circulating rapidly via social media posts and email warns users to watch out for messages with an attached file called "Windows Live Update" or "Archive (Windows Live)" because it contains the most destructive computer virus ever. The "warning" is just a revamped version of several earlier hoaxes that made similar claims.
There is no virus like the one described in this message.
The hoax messages inform internauts that a dangerous virus that destroys the “sector zero” of the hard disk is being spread via email, disguised as an attachment called “Archive (Windows Live)” or “ Windows Live Update.” The posts say that even CNN has warned users about the nasty pieces of malware.
It’s true that cybercriminals have often leveraged the name of the Windows Live service to spread malware, but the hoaxes are highly inaccurate and only create unnecessary panic.
