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.

But what is more important: your system or your data files?

A borked system can take hours to fix up, but data is often impossible to restitute. If you didn't made backups, that's it. Yet, the average user (in contrast to your average OSN reader) isn't familiar with these procedures. You should not take destructive viruses lightly even if you are running a Unix/Unix-based system.

Just take me as a knowledgeable user. ;)
