Orkut scrap problem (XSS attack)

| 13884 views 3 votes 80 comments del.icio.us Permalink
Yesterday there was a massive scrap problem on orkut. Users are getting scraps from there friends with the message "2008 vem ai... que ele comece mto bem para vc". They  can get hacked even if they try to read their scraps. There is an XSS( Cross site scripting) prevailing in the scrapbook, which allows the execution of malicious script, which can preform following actions:

    * Stealing their cookies
    * Logging them out and redirecting them to a fake page
    * Logging them out and redirecting them to a page which automatically installs keylogger, viruses in their computer system.
    Orkut has also recognized this problem and they have started removing these scraps.

So don't open your scrapbook for sometime.
------------------------------------------------------
Update :  If  you are facing some problem in posting scraps to your friends, possible reasons are :

1. Make sure the user is your friend on orkut, because some people may block other users to post scraps on their profile.

2. Make sure the user, the profile where you are writing scrap, haven't blocked your profile.

3. If orkut ask you to enter some text from an image (Captcha), fill it correctly.

 Solution for this :

Firefox (easier):
- Install the extension Flashblock
[Https: / / addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433]
- Restart Firefox and ready
If you do not have Firefox, download here:
Http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

Internet Explorer:
- Go to the Tools Menu-> Internet Options
- Click on the Security tab
- In Zone of web content let selected Internet
- Click Custom Level ...
- Find the part where is Plugi-ins and ActiveX controls of the
- Disable the option Run controls and plugi-ins of ActiveX

With that you will no longer see for example the videos from YouTube, both in and outside Orkut, but at least you will be safe.

I suggest you download Firefox because it is easier to enable and disable.

 Hi All

If you are facing some problem while posting scrap to orkut, make sure that you are not posting any dangerous html or javascript code in your scrap .

Best way is to post only text messages.

Comment here, if you still face Orkut scrap problem .

 Dear Orkut administrator,
I am very much glad to have an account on orkut...might be other social sites are popular in worldwide, but in indian subcontinent i am very much pleased wid this social site. I am having account from past 2-3 years.
Now i am facing some problems so that i need ur kind and positive assistance to come out from this odd situations.
On the afternoon of 10th june 2010, when i checked my account, at that time i was having my all scraps and it was approximately 17200, but again when evening of same date i was checking my account my scrapbook was showing only 500 scraps.... I am worried about such performance by my most favorite social site and i need to see all my scraps back. Earlier it was happen wid me and at that moment i lost my 1000 scraps but now the numbers of scraps are too high.... now its more dan 17000 scraps
I need ur kind and positive consideration from ur side and i m hoping dat u will do a favor to me and thus i can carry on a trust which i have in a bulk for ORKUT.
Thanks,
