Post subject: Kama Sutra worm

"Microsoft in an e-mail Tuesday warned users to update their antivirus protections against the Kama Sutra worm, the mass-mailing virus slated to begin corrupting files later this week."

In its advisory for the Kama Sutra worm, otherwise known as win32/Mywife.E@mm and Nyxem.E, Microsoft warns users to be wary of opening unknown attachments.

The worm, which infects a user's computer once an attachment is opened, may also spread over writeable network shares if there are blank administrator passwords. Users hit with the worm may find a number of their files permanently corrupted on the third day of every month, beginning this Friday.

And like other worms, the Kama Sutra virus attempts to disable security software that is loaded on users systems, Microsoft warns.

Microsoft is advising users to update their antivirus software, as well as remain cautious when opening unknown attachments and use strong password protection.

Security experts estimate the worm has infected at least 500,000 PCs, often using pornography as its enticement.

Yeah, same here.....Are there any available JPG's or, ummm, videos of this 'worm'? Maybe a "brunette" mutation?? (nudge nudge wink wink)

Not for me, of course, for a friend......

It's targetting Microsoft app's such as Excel, Word, Money, etc.
I think I'm clean but I've backed up the important stuff just in case.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news ...

"Microsoft has included detection for this worm in its Malicious Software Removal Tool. However, Microsoft is withholding that update from all but paying members of their "Windows Live Safety" and "OneCare" beta services. Microsoft refuses to release the update to the general public, before their regularly scheduled general update, on February 14th."

Hmm .. shafted again by M$.

It's set to hit tomorrow (3rd February) according to many reputable anti-virus sources.

Link for the symantec removal tool ...
