Bom Sabado is a cookie stealing virus. Those who are affected by this virus try to change their password as soon as possible and also clean your browser cookies. Orkut officials havn’t given out any details of the scrap virus. Its safe to keep away from opening your orkut until orkut official give out the status of the attack. If anyone reads this scrap even in their profile, their cookies are also stolen and so they are also posting scrap automatically to their friend list as scrap bomb !!!

How it works ?
