You are with Microsoft support group and want me to install this patch? Hmmm, let me think. This does not sound fishy to me. It makes perfect sense for Microsoft to post patches on an internet news group.

The very least you could have done was <snip> the Swen virus message and
graphics, and save several kilobytes of newsserver storage space.

I'm sure you are joking in posting as if the message came from a real

Hmmm... The one thing that's missing is the actual link to download the
virus. At least that's what it looks like to me. Dang!... I wanted to try
out my new anti-viral software! :-)
