Spam.
The link don't link to w3.org but to 209.67.220.164, and the site 
mainpage you got a link to an exe to "remove dangerous virus Mytob", eg. 
to put a virus on your computer.

I recieved quite the same mail on another adress (replace w3.org by my 
host, received it both with info and support as the sender). I just saw 
that 209.67.220.164 was now unavailable, maybe my host who i reported 
the abuse to made this website shutdown since then.

So: don't follow the link ;)
