Kama Sutra worm claims first victims

Kama Sutra worm claims first victims

Antivirus vendor F-Secure is reporting the first victims of Kama Sutra (known as Nyxem on the F-Secure site). The worm is expected to unleash its dangerous payload on the third day of each month (in this case, February 3, 2006), however, if your clock is not set properly, you could start to see the damage anytime. Damage includes overwriting files with the following extensions DOC, XLS, MDE, MDB, PPT, PPS, RAR, PDF, PSD, DMP, and ZIP with an error message "DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5]. Fortunately, most antivirus vendors have already updated their signature files to block Kama Sutra.
