Cramps in Kama Sutra
Well, you don’t always need a Super Bowl commercial to get your message out. For years we’ve been telling people, “Don’t download file attachments” unless you’re 100% sure they’re safe. It appears the message has gotten through.
This week all the buzz was about the Kama Sutra-MyWife-Blackmal worm which was set to corrupt files on computers around the world on the 3rd of every month. I was even interviewed by my local news station. They didn’t air the part where I said, I wasn’t really worried about this threat. What a surprise! According to recent news reports, Kama Sutra fizzled and the big story now is now little damage was reported.
What I said in the Blog on Tuesday,
“Users will have to physically download a file which is disguised as a zip file and run it.”
Users are starting to get educated and all our ranting and raving is getting through. Spyware Warrior Suzi Turner also brought to my attention, a report by the University of Washington that spyware has significantly declined. I would like to think I could retire from fighting spyware but I fear we’ll all keep busy for many years to come.
