An Example of How Porn Can be Used to Hack Your Orkut or Google Account

A lot of hackers have achieved great success in their pursuits by using porn to trick susceptible internet users. They usually show a single but luring obscene picture and make people go to their website for seeing more of such pictures.

And now, someone has started the trick in orkut. Recently I saw in my friends list an extremely vulgar picture of a topless girl named Sexy Riya. Instantly I smelt something and went to the profile. I knew that this was someone's profile hacked. So, I looked at the email id and found out that it was one of my actual friends whose account had been hacked. I went to his scrapbook and saw this scrap

HACKED ???!!!!

and this too

hey.. thats not the new version man.... it hacks the password.....


Why? The profile had links displayed in two ways. One, in the status bar, it had said:
NEW ORKUT VERSON...CLICK HERE*

Then, in the about me section
WATCH ME NAKED OUT HERE----> "www.(iwon't give the site).tk



You know what is going to happen if we go to that site. (Though I did know what, I just followed the link, Please don't misunderstand me, OK?)

Now what was there is a page similar to orkut login page, asking you to log in with your google account to get access to porn albums in orkut.

I didn't go further, so I can't tell you whether they keep promises or not. But I can assure you, once they get your username and password, they just take over your orkut profile and replace it with a profile similar to what we started with. So, at your place all your friends are going to see a naked woman, and if they don't control themselves, the virus spreads like swine flu.

So, the next time you see something similar, you know what not to do

N.B. I don't want you to give it a try, that's why I am not giving the link to anything mentioned in here.

  2. Thank you for chipping in with a bright idea ..

    Belief! Isn’t that makes all the difference?

    We can choose to believe in things or not to …
    But there are some events for which we have no answer but belief ..
    Like, why are you you? And not someone else?
    I m sure you love your dad, how come you have this particular person as your dad and not someone else? Not planned ha? U think so?

    I don’t think we are here to mould nature … that’s being selfish and merely self conscious… if there was no one the purpose of nature wouldn’t have been met…

    Where you see accidents I see providence!

    Yea, we can go on debating …
    Interesting ha/?
    But life is like that right Dinesh?
