Install Update for Microsoft Outlook

This one is VERY misleading.

I almost fell for this one. But I suspected it because it was being sent to an email address I have on file with a domain name registration company.

I know that most emails that come to that email address are bogus... but this just looked so real.

However, after thinking about it I remembered that Microsoft NEVER sends emails to alert people that there are important updates. THAT'S WHAT MICROSOFT UPDATE IS FOR - you know that annoying built in program that automatically updates your computer at 3am every day?

One last comment, the link in the email below says one thing, but it really redirects you here instead:
