Updating Windows Xp Is this a secure site?

by KiterDave / January 27, 2013 6:08 AM PST

Hi All
Tried updating my Windows XP today. And when it connected to the web site. It told me the site I was trying to connect to needs to be add to my secure site list.
Well, My list already had all the right Windows secure sites as of three months ago.
The only sites I have are:
http://*.update.microsoft.com
http://update.microsoft.com
https://*.update.microsoft.com
https://update.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com

So, is this a new Site for Microsoft? See site below: Is it a secure site or has some malware changed this search to their site???

Link: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx

Thanks for your help.
Dave
