Nyxem-D worm delivers Kama Sutra

by Nikola Strahija on January 19th, 2006 Relying on a combination of user stupidity and erotic content, the new worm email tries to infect Windows computers.


Nyxem-D worm (also known as Blackmal-E) is deliverd through infected email messages with spoofed sender addresses, offering obscene pictures or pornographic movie clips. Subject lines used in the malicious emails include: The Best Videoclip Ever, Fw: SeX.mpg, Miss Lebanon 2006 and Fuckin Kama Sutra pics. The worm only affects Windows PCs.

If activated, Nyxem-D tries to disable security software and to harvest email addresses from infected PCs. The worm is also programmed to download updates of its code onto infected PCs.

Users are urged to patch systems up to date and update anti-virus signature definition files.
