Becareful guys! 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.
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.

- Well, I don't know about you guys but I've been using AVG antivirus for my computer for quite some time by now and always updating it. What you guys think of this kind of free antivirus eh? So far so good and that my lap top is away from viruses attacks!!
However, this antivirus only detects viruses, trojan horse, worms etc etc but not spywares. I still need to log on to housecall webpage to scan my computer from time to time to kill those spywares..
The best way is, beware of emails attachments and stay out of porns!!
