‘Bom Sabado!’‘Bom Sabado!’‘Bom Sabado!’
Hi Friends, Did you find this scrap in your scrapbook from many of your friends??? If yes, then dont visit the profile of person from which this message has come, coz ur friend profile is now infected my a Virus named..‘Bom Sabado!’. If you visit any affected profile, your profile and ur system will also get affect by this Virus!!!
What is ‘Bom Sabado!’?
'Bom Sabado' is a new worm of type XSS (cross-site scripting) attack, which is created by keeping total focus on Orkut.
'Bom Sabado' is a Portuguese word which means 'Good saturday.'
Only one country is there in which Orkut is still no. 1 in social websites, So it is assumed that someone has made this virus to attack on the popularity of Orkut.
How it works?
Orkut has Temporarily Fixed the issue.
On Orkut Support Forums, its declared by a 'Top Contributor' that Orkut has Temporarily Fixed the issue.
Here what can be meant by temporarily... what i guess.. they have only removed the java script from the site http://tptools.org, but it will take time to Fix this 'Hole of Orkut' to save Orkut in coming times. so Just Be Aware!!!
