The post on Orkut's support forum further says that Google and Orkut are working on restoring user profiles affected by the Bom Sabado virus yesterday. Orkut has also stressed that Bom Sabado infected user profiles should clear their browser cookies, cache and change their Orkut profile password for some time. The Orkut community also asks user infected by Bom Sabado, and anyone in general, not to click on suspicious links on anyone else's Orkut user profile.
