The morning newspaper says - the new virus will attack the computers all over the world today! How many of us did not boot the computer on? I had always wondered if booting a system or connecting to internet will open the doors for viruses?
Or should we not open emails with strange extensions? Or no e-mails at all?
In any case, how do the 'intelligent' programmers write these virus programmes and announce the world that it will attack your computer on this day?
And what a name! Kamasutra a.k.a Blackworm! Techtree says that this virus is designed to overwrite all .doc, .xls, .mdb, .mde, .ppt, .pps, .zip, .rar, .pdf, .psd, and .dmp files. Is there any other extension left out? (By the way, Techtree is a good technology e-daily of India. Worth a click)
Though this virus is considered highly dangerous, Symantec says that this is a slow spreading, 'Troy horse' type. (Hey, have you installed Symantec anti virus solutions on to your computer? Have you renewed your subscriptions promptly?)
Anyways, if you are on your computer and is at work, do read this!
Its time to say good night!
