YouTube Becomes a Hack Victim - Loses Many Popular Music Albums

Vevo confirms hackers pulled down most-viewed video from YouTube

Hackers were able to change the cover image and the description of the videos, with one image showing a group of masked men holding guns. Videos from Adele, Chris Brown, DJ Snake, Drake, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Shakira, and Taylor Swift were reportedly also hacked. This morning, quite a lot of high-profile music videos had their titles and thumbnails changed, forcing some artists to go as far as taking the videos down. Many of their videos are still available on the platform, but they come with a defaced title and a thumbnail image. Another Twitter account with the username Kuroi'sh took responsibility for the hack and threatened to take down more accounts, including NASA, Jake Paul, and Logan Paul.

The hackers, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh, had replaced some of the videos' titles with their own messages, including a call to "free Palestine" alongside their own nicknames. The Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee song is the most viewed YouTube video of all-time. The video-hosting site says it's still recovering from the hack and investigating its source.

Mueller III has also intensified in recent weeks, as have converging legal battles pertaining to Trump and his associates. The regional survey Latinobarometro said Latin Americans last year viewed Trump more unfavorably than they did George W.

YouTube itself was not hacked, and Vevo has confirmed that it has contained the security breach. We are working to reinstate all videos affected and our catalog to be restored to full working order.

A spokesperson for YouTube issued the following statement: "After seeing unusual upload activity on a handful of Vevo channels, we worked quickly with our partner to disable access while they investigate the issue". It's unclear whether the hackers gained access to individual accounts or if there was a wider exploit with Vevo accounts, according to the Verge.

A user appearing to be Prosox commented on the hack on Twitter.
