Google accidentally sends out Kama Sutra worm
Google Inc. accidentally sent out email containing a mass mailing worm to about 50,000 members of an email discussion list focused on its Google Video Blog, the company said Tuesday.
"On Tuesday evening, three posts were made to the Google Video Blog-group that should not have been posted," Google said in a statement, posted late Tuesday night.
"Some of these posts may have contained a virus called W32/Kapser.A@mm -- a mass mailing worm. If you think you have downloaded this virus from the group or an e-mail message, we recommend you run your antivirus program to remove it," said the statement, which was attributed to the Google Video Team.
