The worm wave continues, this time in Google

It's not only Apple and McDonald's that have problems with "worms". Google on Tuesday inadvertently sent the Kama Sutra e-mail worm to the 50,000 subscribers of a Google Video e-mail group. Three postings were made Tuesday evening to an e-mail list that sends out postings to the Google Video blog. Some of these posts contained a virus called W32/Kapser.A@mm--a mass-mailing worm.

W32/Kapser.A is better known as the Kama Sutra worm. Kama Sutra was designed to overwrite files on infected computers on a specific date. However, the worm, which spread under the guise of pornographic content, caused virtually no damage.
