The Kama Sutra worm became active today but is caused relatively little damage in Europe and Asia, according to media reports.

It was expected hundreds of thousands of computers were infected with this worm but it appears that many individuals and companies heard of this worm on the news and were on time to delete it from their systems.

This computer virus spreads by e-mail and shreds lots of documents on the third of each month, this includes .doc, .xls, .pdf, .rar, .zip and lots of other file formats.

Among those who got hit the damage is high, but overall this virus is nowhere near as widespread as some of the recent virus cases.
