I went to Windows update and checked for new updates today. One important update appeared under the heading "Windows 7 Language updates"
The details were:
Download size: 4.3 MB
You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.
Update type: Important
hckSLpGtvi.PguhWDz.fuVOl.gov and jNt.JFnFA.Jigf.xnzMQAFnZ.edu Help and Support: IIKaR.ktBDARxd.plepVV.PGetGeG.lfIYQIHCN.mil
I haven't run the update and have taken the option of hiding the update. I have also changed the settings on autoupdate to inform me of updates and not install them without my input.
Is it possible my computer has been hacked or far more unlikely Microsoft has been hacked?
I ran Kaspersky and Spybot Search and Destroy, they found nothing nasty and Malwarebytes found a PUP.Optional.Hicosmea Registry key.
I'm running Windows 7 service pack 1.
