File-sharers offer Windows update: DON’T TAKE IT

File sharing services that primarily share music files and computer programs are using their sharing services to distribute the latest update to Windows XP – service pack 2.
ONLY download Windows XP updated from reliable sources that you know and trust – your computer retailer, consultant and of course directly from Microsoft.
BBC writes File-sharing activists are using Microsoft’s key update for Windows XP to highlight the benefits of peer-to-peer technology.
A lobby group called Downhill Battle has set up a link using file-sharing software to distribute the SP2 update.
Microsoft told BBC News Online it was investigating the site.
The SP2 update has already been released to PC manufacturers and is expected to be widely available to home users for free in late August.
