I just read that it is not for INTEL Macs, but the PowerPCs we all have.
It's also graphic disguised as an app which is really an app, so as  
on Windows, if it's .exe and asks you to install, you just don't. On  
the Mac would be .tar or .gzip.

So you have more than one chance to examine it and NOT take it before  
downloading, installing, entering your login password, etc.

A little care should protect you as well as the update to 10.4.5
