In M$ world you cannot open a new tab unless you have "Windows live toolbar" enabled!!!!!

Orkut security: Blocked or locked album viewing

A few days back orkut unveiled a good privacy measure to lock albums, scrapbooks et al for users who do not want them to be available for public consumption. Great feature! The only problem though is that it doesn't work or rather there is a workaround it! This is how:
1. Go to the profile page of the person whose album is locked.

2. View html source of the page and search for 'medium'

3. This will give you an url like http://img<2,3 or 4>

4. Open another tab paste this url and replace 'medium' with 'milieu/1'( and press enter(or go button of your browser and bang! the first picture in his/her album (thumbnail) will be presented to you.

5. To view other pictures in the album change the 'milieu/1' to 'milieu/2' and so on till you have seen all the pictures.

Security blunder of this magnitude was not expected from google!
