The Trojan posts a message in the user’s scrapbook area of the Orkut system.The message text is chosen by the attacker and can be a random sentence written in Brazilian Portuguese, such as the following:

Message example 1:

Opa, tudo bom? Eu criei um video com uma selecao de minhas fotos novas, clica ai pra ver – [MALICIOUS_LINK] – Esta bem legais!!!

Message example 2:

Got this via email….

There were these identical twins, Jim and John. Jim was the owner of an old dilapidated boat. It just so happened that John’s wife died the same day Jim’s boat sank. A few days later, a kindly old woman saw Jim and mistaking him for John said Ā “I’m sorry to hear about your loss. You must feel terrible.” Jim, thinking she was talking about his boat said “Fact is I’m sort of glad to be rid of her. She was a rotten old thing from the beginning. Her bottom was all shriveled up and she smelled like an old dead fish. She was always losing her water, she had a bad crack in the back and a pretty big hole in the front too. Every time I used her, the hole got bigger and she leaked like crazy. I guess what fi nally finished her off was when I rented her to these four guys looking for a good time. I warned them she wasn’t very good, but they wanted to use her anyhow. The fools all tried to get in her at once and she split right up the middle.” The old woman fainted.

The Worst Cases

Got this via email….

THE WORST HIJACKING
We shall never know the identity of the man who in 1976 made the most unsuccessful hijack attempt ever. On a flight across America, he rose from his seat, drew gun and took the stewardess hostage. “Take me to Detroit,” he demanded. “We’re already going to Detroit,” she replied. “Oh … good,” he said, and sat down again.

THE WORST BANK ROBBERY
In August 1975 three men were on their way in to rob the Royal Bank of Scotland at Rothesay, when they got stuck in the revolving doors. They had to be helped free by the staff and, after thanking everyone, sheepishly left the building. A few minutes later they returned and announced their intention of robbing the bank, but none of the staff believed them. When they demanded 5,000 pounds in cash, the head cashier laughed at them, convinced that it was a practical joke. Then one of the men jumped over the counter, but fell to the floor clutching his ankle. The other two tried to make their getaway, but got trapped in the revolving doors again.

THE WORST ANIMAL RESCUE
During the firemen’s strike of1978, the British Army had taken over emergency fire fighting and on 14 January they were called out by an elderly lady in South London to retrieve her cat which had become trapped up a tree. They arrived with impressive haste and soon discharged their duty. So grateful was the lady that she invited them all in for tea. Driving off later, with fond farewells completed, they ran over the cat and killed it!!

THE WORST INSURANCE
This is the best lawyer story of the year, decade,and probably the century. A Charlotte, NC, lawyer purchased a box of very rare and
expensive cigars,: then insured them against fire among other things. Within a month having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost “in a series of small fires.” The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. The lawyer sued .. and won! In delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated, nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire, and was obligated to pay the claim. Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the rare cigars lost in the “fires.”

NOW FOR THE BEST PART…
After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine. This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

My Fav Song

After a real loooooooooooooooooooooooooong time i was listening to all my favourite songs and of them this is one i like the most…

ArtistĀ  : Bon Jovi

Song : Thank you for loving me

And here goes the lyrics….

ItĀ“s hard for me to say the things
I want to say sometimes
ThereĀ“s no one here but you and me
And that broken old street light
Lock the doors
leave the world outside
All IĀ“ve got to give to you
Are these five words tonight

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldnĀ“t see
For parting my lips
When I couldnĀ“t breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

I never knew I had a dream
Until that dream was you
When I look into your eyes
The skyĀ“s a different blue
Cross my heart
I wear no disguise
If I tried, you’d make believe
that you believed my lies

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldnĀ“t see
For parting my lips
When I couldnĀ“t breathe
Thank you for loving me

You pick me up when I fall down
You ring the bell before they count me out
If I was drowning you would part the sea
And risk your life to rescue me

yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!….

Lock the doors
leave the world outside
All IĀ“ve got to give to you
Are these five words tonight

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
Oh, when I couldnĀ“t see
For parting my lips
When I couldnĀ“t breathe
Thank you for loving me

When I couldnĀ“t fly
Oh, you gave me wings
You parted my lips
When I couldnĀ“t breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Oh, for loving me
