Orkut, a messenger which is accessible only to Gmail account holders is well-known to enable friendship cultivate among its various users and most of the Secf users are using this messenger.

The worm uses a message in Portuguese to entice people to click on a file that is disguised as a JPEG image, FaceTime Security Labs said in a statement.

The initial file, called “minhasfotos.exe,” creates two additional files on a user’s system, “winlogon_.jpg” and “wzip32.exe,” . When the user, after the initial compromise, clicks on the “My Computer” icon in Windows , an e-mail with his or her personal data is sent to the anonymous attacker

Google confirmed the worm. “We are aware of this issue and will have a temporary fix in place within the hour,” a company representative said in an e-mailed statement. “We are working on a more permanent solution for users to guard against these malicious efforts.”
