Orkut infected with Bom Sabado worm

Google owned social networking site Orkut has been reportedly attacked by “Bom Sabado” worm. In Portugese, “Bom Sabado” means “Good Saturday”.
The worm seems to be posting scraps with the text “Bom Sabado” and also adding affected users to new Orkut groups.
Such XSS attacks have targeted Orkut in the past too.
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.
Users have been advised by experts to avoid logging to Orkut until the problem is fixed.
