Computers experts are warning users that a new 'Kama Sutra' virus that offers sexual images could delete millions of everyday files on the PCs around the world.

Also dubbed as 'Blackworm', 'MyWife' or 'Nyxem-D' the virus is disguised as a warning about a university rapist, and has been emailed to students across the UK.

Graham Cluley, from safety software specialists Sophos, said that the virus spread was a throwback to the days when viruses spread by offering pictures of famous stars.

"It's a throwback to the days when viruses spread offering pictures of Anna Kournikova," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Experts are assuring people that computers can be protected if anti-virus software updates are current.
