The Official Orkut Brazil blog was apparently hacked by someone with the hacker leaving some html pages which contained malware on the site. Orkut is one of the most popular social networking site in Brazil and India with millions of users using it every day.
The layout of the page was not in line with other blog which you will see at http://blog.orkut.com and also displayed a hotmail ID instead of a Gmail ID. However, they also discovered a page on the blog which was hosting and distributing malware on the site.
The page was finally cleaned up around 2 hours after it was posted on Google Discovery and currently the URL http://blog.orkut.com.br/ throws a 404 error. Not much information is available right now and Google has not made it clear as to how the user was able to attack their servers or add malware pages to it. We will update this post when new information becomes available.
