Ok its a good title for a spam e-mail, warning you of Conflicker.B Infection Alert.

1. Microsoft hardley ever email you.

2.  If they do email you, it usually isn’t just text its full of pictures.

Here is a copy of the e-mail below
“Dear Microsoft Customer,

Starting 18/10/2009 the ‘Conficker’ worm began infecting Microsoft customers unusually rapidly. Microsoft has been advised by your Internet provider that your network is infected.

To counteract further spread we advise removing the infection using an anti-spyware program. We are supplying all effected Windows Users with a free system scan in order to clean any files infected by the virus.

Please install attached file to start the scan. The process takes under a minute and will prevent your files from being compromised. We appreciate your prompt cooperation.

Regards,

Microsoft Windows Agent #2 (Hollis)
