Attached to the email is a file called Microsoft_STF_install.zip. And, according to the above email, "all users of the internet" should run the program to validate "there" (sic) email account. But the attached file is infected with Troj/Agent-AANA Trojan horse.

Amazing how "All users of the Internet" seem to be, according to these douche bags, only Windows users.

FAIL.

Tonight on DCU.

 

But seriously, who are they fooling with that email? Most emails with a file attached are bad, Microsoft would never do this. Fail.

Wow, this is nearly as bad as the fake UPS or FedEX spams i get which are filled with grammatical and nonsensical things.I sometimes wonder why  they don't hire an editor to check their work. They would probably be much more successful.

Talk about epic Fail. Wrong grammar and usage of the old Windows Logo is such a dead giveaway.

Great work mashing up the old Windows XP flag and the old Microsoft logo. Real smooth.
