Google is fighting a virus that has launched a attack on its social networking site Orkut.

Social networking site Orkut is currently hit by a virus problem.Dubbed ‘Bom Sabado, which means ‘Good Saturday’ in Portuguese, the worm has attacked the XSS (cross-site scripting) of the site and posted scraps to the Orkut users with the text Bom Sabado and sent to the users account by the name of the other friends account.

Google has asked Orkut users to not login for a while and have asked users to refresh their browser cookies & cache. Google has also advised users to change the password and the security question as well.
