Sounds dangerous right? Well, it is.. kind of…

I am talking about personal messages on Orkut. How safe are they? Are you sure, no one else can read your messages?

Well, something to show you…

Orkut Message Window


This is personal message of some user which I am viewing. If you see on the top, it shows my id as logged in but the message which is opened does not belong to me.

Now the quick question would be, how the hell did you find it?

Well, I was checking my referral logs in my w3counter account and one of the referrers was this message. So I clicked on the link expecting a login box or access denied message. But instead of that, I was able to view that message.

So now next question would be, how do I read that girl’s messages?

haha, it is not that easy as it sounds. In short, it is very difficult because the messages are assigned a random key which is not possible to generate so easily. So if you know that random message ID, then only you can read the message.

It needs good amount of time to understand the pattern of the message IDs and view the messages.
