Hackers discovered most serious bug on orkut and that’s too orkut’s most accessed area – scrapbook!
What makes it most serious is that this time user do not need to click or perform any action anywhere to trigger vulnerable codes.
Many users suffered from this. Most of them getting logged out of orkut by just visiting their own scrapbook. Worst they can not delete blank or suspicious scraps either! 🙁
The bug is not fixed yet and this can be used by malicious hackers to gain access victims orkut account so details about this bug will be posted after it gets rectified, till then lets use following solution to save yourself!
# Firefox User:
- Install Flashblock firefox extension!
- You will need to Restart Firefox.
- Go to the Tools Menu -> Internet Options
- Click on the Security tab
- Click on Custom Level
- Disable Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins
Additionally delete scraps from your scrapbook if you are getting logged out of orkut on just visiting your own scrapbook!
