Making the rounds today is another hoax, this time it is in the form of an HTML message being sent to "Commercial Customer" with the subject "last network security pack". Another reminder to all, Microsoft does not send updates in email form to users.
To verify the latest security news from Microsoft, information can be found at the following link.

Several news sources today are reporting the e-voting software company VoteHere, Inc. had been compromised in October, and is being investigated by the FBI. Reports are stating that the breach occurred during a period when an announced security patch had been delayed in being applied at VoteHere.
