Kama Sutra virus

Date: January 31, 2006

A Kama Sutra computer virus could delete millions of everyday files on PCs across the world, experts warn.

The worm was nicknamed after the love-making bible because it spreads through emails offering sexual images.

Also known as Blackworm, MyWife or Nyxem-D, the bug has been programmed to wake up on Friday.

Graham Cluley, from safety software specialists Sophos, said: “It’s a throwback to the days when viruses spread offering pictures of Anna Kournikova.”

Computers can be protected by ensuring anti-virus software updates are current.
