Kama Sutra keeps CERT on its toes

Last updated on: February 03, 2006 14:42 IST

The dreaded mass-mailing worm expected to strike computers across the world today has kept the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, set up by the Department of Information Technology, on its toes.

Since Friday morning the response team is being flooded with calls seeking information on the virus and protection to

be taken against it, but no actual cases of infection have been so far reported.

"The mass mailing worm called Nyxem with aliases such as Kama Sutra, Blackmal, MyWife, Grew and its variants are spreading very fast infecting large number of computers running Microsoft Windows," CERT said.
