Privacy, Security, Encryption "All too often people talk about the disadvantages of the Windows operating system: it has too many security flaws, it is not properly patched, it is not security oriented… Until the much talked about Vista system finally reaches our computers, there will still be plenty of time to protest. However, with the new malware dynamic, the idea that malware is restricted to specific operating systems is becoming anachronistic. It no longer matters whether the victim is a home-user or a company employee. It is now irrelevant whether the system administrator is just someone who lives round the corner or a highly qualified IT manager."

I'ts common practice to look left and right when you cross a road.About time the average user is proper educated and changes their habits.

MS never sends e-mail with direct update links.
Bank employees don't send direct e-mail asking you to reset a PIN number.
African princes in need of a bank account don't exist.
when in doubt never open unsollicited e-mail.
