Bom Sabado means "A Good Saturday” in Portuguese language (thanks to Google translation feature). But it’s surely a bad Saturday for many Google’s Orkut users, as this Bom Sabado virus compromised thousands of accounts in India and in Brazil as well.
What is Bom Sabado all about?
It’s just the name of the new worm which is eating up the Orkut accounts. If you are a fulltime Orkut user, you are well aware of those virus infections This is just another Orkut virus, but it’s biggest and you don’t need to click any links to get hacked!
Bom Sabado Orkut virus infected profiles are automatically posting virus scraps on to the other’s scrapbooks. A near watching of Bom Sabado scrap in your scrapbook or in your friends’ scrapbooks is more than enough to get your account hacked.
Gone are the days where you have to click on a link to get hacked! This time the hackers used the XSS technology to target one of world’s popular social networking platform Orkut.
The best way to keep your accounts safe is not logging onto the Orkut for some time. Orkut didn’t responded on this issue, but I am pretty sure they would have started working on it to fix the issues.
If you find your account hacked, don’t get panic. Revert back to the old Orkut layout, unjoin from the Brazilian communites, and change your password.
If you can’t access Orkut, simply cleanup the cookies and the temporary internet files from the PC, and try to login.
