    I did not find any official information regarding this. But there is a serious scan that is spreading verry fast to all orkut users.

    I got information about Orkut Scraps in my gmail account. Today I got a scrap Bom Sabado! from almost 8 friends in my network. When I opened orkut and tried to visit those friends profile, I suddenly noticed in my updates that I have joined few Porno related community and have sent that scrap too all my friends in my network.
    I tried to visit that community and unjoined from that, but orkut was so slooow. After that I saw I again joined that community.
    This is too bad and a scam for sure. So my request is that please do not open your Orkut account any sooner or you will be a victim.
    All those communities were in Portuguese language, so it may be originated from there or Brazil, where Orkut is most popular.
    Change your password soon.

    I'm using old version.

    It's safe to use Orkut today?

    Thanks.
