Contagion - Worms spreading via Orkut.com

Firstly, let me tell you it's not Orkut's Fault.

By blocking the virus, Orkut will have to make it tougher to use the features it offers.

But I still can't understand, how the worm bypasses the CAPTCHA (or something like that) that is the Image Verification feature required for posting links !!!

Just browsing through orkut wont spread virus. But once you click the link - U're done for ....

These are some of the links the virus used (now blocked by tinyurl.com)

tinyurl.com/yompks
tinyurl.com/3x23ma

Oi , como vai? Olha só, encontrei umas fotos do seu perfil num site de encontros, mas com o nome de outra pessoa, é bom vc dar uma olhadinha nisso, pois é realmente muito estranho. Tirei uma foto da página, para caso ela seja removida antes que veja.
O link da página é urlcut.com/img12
Copie-o e cole no navegador para visualizar.
Assim que tiver visto, me confirme se não é um equívoco.
Abraços!
