Worm on Google's Orkut Posted by Mikko @ 14:46 GMT

Google's Orkut social networking site has been hit by a web worm.

This one used a vulnerability in the "scrapbook" feature of the site. It infected almost 400,000 accounts before it was shut down by removing a download file it needed to operate.


More information here and here and, hopefully soon, also at the official Orkut blog.
