You are certainly wise to suspect this kind of E-mail, since it is both unexpected and contains a .zip file (this is often used to avoid ISP's virus scans). In addition to the non-standard English used, firewalls are NOT anti-virus-finders. Lastly, it pretends to contain an "update" for an application, but doesn't indicate what it is updating or what customers they are supporting. As Acklan has written, no legitimate company ever sends patches or updates as an E-mail attachment.
I am sure if you were to expand the E-mail header, it would show an extremely questionable source. If you are using Yahoo, you should send a copy to their "abuse" address, and then promptly delete the E-mail.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
