Bugs & Viruses Security watchers say the Kama Sutra worm, which is programmed to overwrite files on infected Windows PCs today, will have a damaging but not catastrophic effect. The Kama Sutra worm (or Nyxem-E or Blackworm) poses as an email message offering a variety of salacious content. Subject lines used in the malicious emails include: The Best Videoclip Ever, Fw: SeX.mpg, Miss Lebanon 2006 and Fuckin Kama Sutra pics. The worm, which can also spread across network shares, only affects Windows PCs.

If they can click an executable file, they can make the script executable by changing its permissions... Never overestimate the user when it comes to attachements. At first, the complexity of the commands (compared to point and click) might put them off, but if they want to see that Miss Lebanon, they will try to.

Call me a pessimist, but if some people are gullible enough to open an attachement from an unknown source...
