Google uses a 4 Level Orkut login which makes it difficult to hack orkut account:
First Level - Security-SSL or 128 bit secured connection
Second Level - Google account checks for cookie in the system of user
Third Level - Google provides a redirection to the entered User information
Fourth Level - Google doesn’t use conventional php/aspx/asp coding. So it is impossible to hack Orkut using input validation attack!!!
It is not an easy task to hack Orkut by breaking this security! But still some people manage to get access to other’s Orkut accounts. The question concerned is how they do it? Many of them just use simple tricks that fool users and then they themselves leak out their password.
Following are 6 orkut hacking methods:
Like all other social networks, orkut is mainly hacked by Orkut phishers i.e. fake orkut login pages. Phishing is most favorite and can be said “easiest” way of hacking Orkut account passwords. What you have to do is simply send a link to fake Orkut login page (prepared by you) to victim and ask him to login to his Orkut account by fake Orkut login page (phisher). Once, he login to Orkut account using Orkut login Phisher, his Orkut account password is sent to you and thus, his account is hacked.

Keylogging is useful technique that directly sends you Orkut account passwords. You have to only install keylogger on victim computer and give a destination to keylogger to send orkut passwords. That’s it…you will be sent all passwords typed on victim computer and thus you can hack Orkut account password easily. For more information on Keyloggers check out my post here.
4. Community Links:
Many a times, orkut users are provided with links in community scrap asking to click on this link. Clicking on this link will take you to a orkut login phisher mentioned in first hacking method “Phishing”, ready to hack your Orkut login password.
Example: It may be something like http://www.okrut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=22910233 OKRUT not ORKUT. This is definitely a trap created by the hacker to hack your Orkut password. Clicking on this link will take you to a fake login page and there you loose up your password.
5. Orkut New Features:
I few months back received a page that looked like they are giving the user an option of selecting new features like new orkut themes or orkut backgrounds and demanding you “only your ID and password” !!! When user submits this page, his ID and password is mailed to the coder and thus his orkut account is hacked.
6. Primary E-mail Address:
If hacker is able to obtain password of primary email address of orkut account, then orkut account can be easily hacked by using “forgot password” link on orkut login page. By using forgot password link, hacker can ask orkut to reset password and orkut will send a link to this hacked primary email address about the password reset. Now, hacker can easily obtain your orkut account password and thus hack orkut account profile. So, you can prevent this by keeping useless or unknown email id as primary email address.
