I can’t understand what is in the message body (not much anyway) but
judging from the subject line I believe it is NOT spam (although
technically crossposting to so many groups it might formally be
spam?).

I had a spam e-mail today with the subject line “Use this corrective
update” posing as if it came from Microsoft and recommending to run an
attached .com file to fix all problems with Windows updates at once.
Whoa, it would be quite naive to believe that. I guess this post by
“Chris H.” is warning against such naivety.
