Okay I'm typing this message for the 3rd time so its fairly concise by this time.
1. The site is registered to Michael Burnham. Different address and name from the registered owner of securesoft.org. I don't know how hard it is to register a domain name using fake information though, other people here can probably answer that one.
2. It looks like the software is real. I still wouldn't buy it though as it I think its a waste of money.
3. Here is the actual MS bulletin regarding this problem:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-043.asp
4. If that doesn't work here is another link:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;828035
They present several workarounds as well as patches for it.
Hope that answers your questions.

I did a whois lookup on http://www.windows-patch.info, and got the same information.

I also noticed that when I pinged the address and requested a hostname, I received this address:

tunacan.com

I think that Michael Burnham (or whoever is responsible for the popup message) is using a stolen IP address.

That message is similar to what gets sent in emails. Bottom line - never download a patch from anyplace other than Microsoft - period!

Like Alkotr0z said, get the real thing via the 2 links he provided or here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en


//btw -- did anyone happen to notice the URL that all those patch links take you to? -- https://www.securesoft.org/popupblock/o ... d=MS03-043

I looked up the IP address of that guy and he is somewhere in china. I have reported him to microsoft twice now. His net_sends ALWAYS happen at the worst possible times, and interrupt me at the worst possible times.
