windows live messenger phishing scam

click picture to enlarge
we received this new style phishing email a few minutes ago - its claiming to be an invite for the windows live beta however if you hover your mouse over where it says "BAIXAR AGORA" you will see the true url: users.cjb.net/t0mt0m/messengerlive.exe

cjb.net is not a microsoft domain. this is probaby some sort of virus or trojan some criminal is attempting to install on your computer.
