Warning over fake Windows update

Users are being warned to watch out for a fake Microsoft security update. Circulating as an e-mail the fake message points people at a bogus website that claims to host critical security updates.

Security firms and Microsoft urged users to ensure they visit legitimate sites when downloading updates.
