Only download your patches directly from Microsoft...

Those clever (and whatever other names you want to call them), hackers have come up with another new way of downloading Trojans to your machines.

Simple, just send out an email that contains Microsoft Patches BUT with a Trojan embedded. So you think you're getting the real deal when in fact you're getting more than you bargained for.

My advice? Use Windows Update or if you have to manually download a patch PLEASE do so ONLY from the MS website.
