Watch out for this hoax/virus!

Thought you wanna know:
Here's a e-mail message (subject: Newest Network Security Update) I received 5 mins ago:
Microsoft Customer

this is the latest version of security update, the
"March 2003, Cumulative Patch" update which eliminates
all known security vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer,
Outlook and Outlook Express as well as five newly
discovered vulnerabilities. Install now to protect your computer
from these vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could allow
an attacker to run executable on your system. This update includes
the functionality of all previously released patches.
[...]
It contains this virus (according to Norton AV):
Norton AntiVirus removed the attachment: p178116.exe.
The attachment was infected with the W32.Gibe.B@mm virus.
DO NOT OPEN THIS E-MAIL MESSAGE!!!
