New Fake .Mac Email

mailI just received this at my .Mac account:

Dear user [MY USER NAME],

You have successfully updated the password of your Mac account.

Heh. Mac Antivirus? Anybody else received these?

UPDATE: By the way, if you receive something like this and you aren't sure if it is a fake, assuming you are using Mail.app, go to View—>Message—>Raw Source. Grab a couple of the IP addresses in the header and run a Whois on them, or simply scan for them in Google. Most likely, it'll show up as not being Apple, and as being a known spammer. Train your spam filter to recognize it as spam and delete.
