Hey everyone! If you’re a frequent Orkut user (I’m sure many of my Indian friends are), this is a warning for you:
If you’ve read the following scrapbook entry in Orkut
2008 vem ai… que ele comece mto bem para vc
from one of your friends, you’re infected.
Simply viewing the message alone is sufficient for your Orkut account to be added to a new community named “Infectados pelo VÃrus do Orkut” and be an unwilling new host for the worm.
At the time of this writing, the number of Orkut members in Infectados pelo VÃrus do Orkut is already at the 400K mark. (read more here)
I’m not sure of doing what can prevent infections. Please post your views in the comments. Also, pass on this information to your friends.
