For the past few days, I received multiple, very authentic looking emails asking me to update my Outlook mail program. While I always follow the regular Microsoft updating process and do know that Microsoft will not send out clickable links or attachments, I was unsure for a moment, because this notification looks very legit!
Googling confirmed that it is indeed a bad idea click the link (or the attachment) supplied in that mail: you will download malware (Trojans).
