Orkut Virus

I woke up this morning to find emails from about 10 of my friends scrapping me on Orkut. The common part of all the scraps was this text:

“2008 vem ai… que ele comece mto bem para vc”

It looked like a virus and i quickly did some checks to see if i am infected too, but havent found any proof of it yet. The only common pattern seems to be that these guys are on Windows, in essence there seems to be Windows Virus spreading (luckily no traces of windows
on my machine).

If you use windows and orkut i suggest you change password immediately and also run updated virus definitions.

Here is a link which reports the problem:


Mrinal points out that it seems to be a cross platform js and flash virus. Ad blocking this url could solve the issue.
