Orkut Server Hacked?

Were the Orkut servers hacked or is there a virus going around?

I got a bunch of these messages from many of my friends in my Orkut scrapbook.

Look at the screenshot below:

orkut hacked

Update: Vikas says that this is an XSS attack. According to him:

When someone sends you a spam scrap and you read that scrap the same scrap is sent to your friends from your account. This will spread for the coming few days possibly till orkut takes some measures.

if possible change your gmail account possible and do not login to orkut till they sort this out.

Check my comments section for the whole explanation.

  1. This is a virus. Its called xss attack. A piece of javascript code, named virus.js and fetched from a myopera location, somehow made its way into my Orkut session when a friend scraped me with the spam message and started scrapping everyone.
