The Latest Mail Scam

I received this in the mail on my Yahoo account:

"Do not reply to this message: Dear Customer,Our robot has fixed an abnormal activity from your IP address on sending e-mails.Probably it is connected with the last epidemic of a worm which does not have patches at the moment.We recommend you to install a firewall module and it will stop e-mail sending. Otherwise your account will be blocked until you do not eliminate malfunction. Customer support center robot."

The e-mail included some file they wanted me to install...LOL (undoubtedly the actual virus) ;) This scam would have been more convincing had it not been written in broken English.
