Got a set of security updates with the ubuntu update manager. Is this a genuine update "cabextract" ? it's from microsoft it says, that can't be right can it?

That is a legitimate package from Ubuntu. Cabextract helps the system unpack or "unzip" .CAB files, which are Microsoft's install packages. It is used by wine, bcm-fwcutter and many other programs.

Thanks very much, just being over cautious, it's the M word that rattled me :p.
