Beware of Kama Sutra virus

If you receive a file promising a PowerPoint presentation on various sexual positions from Kama Sutra, do not open it! A computer security firm, Sophos has warned that some hackers are spreading a deadly computer virus through the PowerPoint presentation.

This virus allows hackers to snoop in to your computer system and steal your personal details.

Basically, when you click on the file, you do get to see the real PowerPoint presentation but simultaneously, a Trojan called Troj/Bckdr-RFM gets installed in your system which steals personal information even from the hidden files.


This booby trap file allows the hacker to not only steal information but also spy on the user's activities. They may also use it for malicious deeds like attacking other sites.

"In scant consolation, the booby-trapped file did present slides of more than a half dozen lovemaking techniques illustrated from the ancient Indian text," Graham Cluley of Sophos said.
