Kamasutra worm relies on old trick
This worm is described as "old fashioned" in several ways.
First, it relies on the oldest trick in the book, a computer user's desire to see nasty pictures, to get them to take an action.
"With the Kama Sutra worm, this is a traditional style worm, meaning that it takes user interaction in order to become infected; someone has to double click on a file attachment, and then it does some type of malicious behavior, such as, in this case destroying a folder or a file," said Alain Sergile, a security expert at Internet Security Systems (ISS) in Atlanta.
