News Burst: MS warns against Y2K hoax

Microsoft is warning users to disregard an e-mail hoax that claims to contain a Y2K fix for some of the company's software.

The e-mail, which contains a message from Tom Chandler, begins "Dear registered Microsoft customer, we have compiled a program to test and fix the issues related to the year 2000 change" and contains an attachment.

Microsoft said the e-mail did not appear to be malicious, but warned that such e-mails could be modified to be destructive.
