A virus named Bom Sabado ( meaning Good Saturday in Portuguese) has attacked orkut profiles all over the globe! It’ not a silly virus and
requires serious attention. This menace automatically sends messages with with text Bom Sabado! to your friends and updates your status with a Brazilian flag. Moreover it also makes you join some Brazilian porn communities!

We strongly recommend that you stay out of orkut until google has come up with a solution to this problem.While they are at it, lets also take some measures to prevent it!

  • Do not login to your Orkut or Gmail.
  • Change your Orkut password from here.
  • Delete all your cookies.

Here is an example of Orkut Bom Sabado Virus.
