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.

That's one of the downright stupidest ideas I've ever heard.

Not allowing users to run their own programs and scripts in the name of security? Are you serious?

It's like that IE dialog that pops up when you download an exe. It's annoying and nothing else. If someone wants to run it he will, be it a dialog to click through or chmod it.
