Same old trick.  Remember that just because *we* have known about it
for months and months doesn't matter.  The people most likely to fall
for the scam in the first place are the same people who don't have enough
clue to hit windowsupdate.microsoft.com on a regular basis.  As a result,
it still works on enough victims that it's worth trying.

You'll know that it's no longer worth trying when you stop seeing spam
that uses it.... ;)
