Bom Sabado --- Be Careful

An Orkut virus called Bom Sabado has hit the social networking site creating a wide spread disruption of services for website users. Bom Sabado which is a Portuguese term meaning Good Saturday infected various profile on Saturday that was the 25th of September passing down to many other profiles via scraps and messages. Orkut management officials have requested all profile owners to keep away from the website until the issue is sorted out and moreover if user profiles have in anyway been affected by the virus then they have been asked to change their login passwords and other security details immediately. Orkut has previously also been affected by a similar virus back in the month of February this year. A similar virus also hit the micro-blogging site Twitter. Nothing much about this virus has been revealed through Google but the virus potentially hacks the profile and sends out duplicate messages across to profile member list with the message Bom Sabado. With this the virus can scratch out all your cookie information’s and browser history . The descriptiveness of the virus is still unconfirmed however the attack is being rated as an XSS category attack. Waiting is the best cure for the current situation as the social networking site has not mentioned about any preventive steps or any steps to wade out the virus. Orkut hasn’t commented anything about this hit since hours and there are no updates from their side yet but the question that innately lies across is that when will social networking portals stand free of such malignant issues.
