Google Orkut Spreading Worms

A worm is infecting users of Google’s Orkut, PC World reported.

Seems Google’s social networking program is getting a little too social.

“Some Orkut users received an e-mail telling them they had been sent a new scrapbook entry — a type of Orkut message — on their profile from another Orkut user.

They only had to view their profile to become infected by the worm, which added them to an Orkut group, “Infectados pelo Vírus do Orkut,” wrote the blogger Kee Hinckley on his site TechnoSocial,” PC World noted.
