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.

At my place of work we actually did have a small outbreak - luck us it didn't get on any of our developer's machines because we have write access to a server's network share with all of the documentation for everything we create, source code, test results, etc. We had it under control and machines updated to catch it within an hour of the first occurance so thumbs up to our IT team.

I'm assuming they were given a swift kick in the shins for being foolish enough to click on such a link?

It's amazing how many people still fall for the old free porn ruse, it's a classic used for spreading viruses and frankly anyone with common sense should know better to fall for it.
