Bom Sabado! Orkut is now under attack with a new spam-virus! Please stay away....

Today I recieved many scraps from my friends saying that "Bom Sabado!". I just called my friends and asked what it is...
They dont know anything anything., then i started googling to get the details of that scrap.
Finally I found that its a new virus-spam in orkut. Its a worm stealing Orkut and Google accounts’ cookies and automatically posting scraps. It also automatically makes you join some communities.

Here are some few tips to escape from this hacking:

1) If you get that scrap from your friends, please dont visit your friend's profile. It may stole your cookies your account will be used to post scraps.

2) If you have visited any of your friend's infected profile and now your profile is also get infected, then first check if you have been joined some communities automatically, if yes,and remove them. Then close Orkut. immediately. Then change your Google account’s password, security question, secondary email and mobile number. This will prevent you from the hacking.

3)Clear your cookies/cache, then you will get an ‘Automated Query’ message. Don’t hustle about that.

4)Just logout from your account, if you cant logout. Click here.

5)Just forget about Orkut, until this problem is solved. I will try to update this post when the issue is resolved.

Stay Away.... Be Safe....!!!
