No, it sure wasn't.  My copy rated Unsure, and it was extremely well done!

Real mail from MS never ends with friendly greetings <0.3 wink>.

Actually, I would -- stinkin' Outlook wouldn't let me get at the .exe
attachment, and I didn't care enough to crack it.  I have software that
captures disk writes at the physical block level and can undo them, so
sometimes I run a virus just to see what it does.  Maybe this one really did
package security updates <wink>.
