Australian IT security professionals have so far reported few problems from the so-called Kama Sutra worm, which was due to begin overwriting files on infected PCs today.

Anti-virus company Trend Micro said it had recorded around 30,000 infections worldwide by mid-afternoon, with 200 recorded in Australia.

"It's definitely not a mass outbreak," Trend Micro premium services manager Adam Biviano said. "But it breaks the calm that we've seen in the virus arena for the past few months."

The "time bomb" function of the worm had not been seen for about 18 months, Mr Biviano said.

A spokesman for the national computer emergency response team, AusCERT, also reported little activity.
