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.

The Best Videoclip Ever, Fw: SeX.mpg, Miss Lebanon 2006 and f--kin Kama Sutra pics

I get thousands of those types of spam a week, this virus died the minute it was spread with headings like that, just swirling around in the sea of my automated junk mail filter.

Not that it would have affected my machine anyway, but as far as destructive viruses go, this was poorly researched for maximum effectiveness.

Now that last Paypal phishing scam was pretty good, just asked for wayyyyy too much information on the included link, which was the tip off.

They are getting better that's for sure.
