The Kama Sutra Worm February 3rd

I wish i posted this earlier but sorry. I don't know who has hurd of the Kama Sutra Worm but it is a high risk worm. It is considered this years number one computer threat (so far). Symantec released a free software that searches and destroys the worm. http://securityresponse.symantec.com...val.tool.html?

The worm deletes documents and files commonly used.

I'm downloading that immediately, seeing how I never turn off my PC, and it's constantly downloading lol...

Does the worm get released tomorrow or something (the date)?

Thanks for that

BTW Like the name

LOL, no Cliffy. Any cable or DSL connection is constantly connected. Unlike dial-up when you sign off of your ISP.

I ran it, and turned out clean, but it seems to have deleted all of the caches, and auto-saved passwords I had...I recommend it, it didn't hurt a bit, but I had to turn off my internet, and close everything

That's the effect he was going for, there's a subliminal message, but...I've already said too much

Our motto should be..."the post is faster than the eye"
