YouTube’s most watched video, ‘Despacito’ was apparently deleted by hackers. The artist Luis Fonsi’s music video, which had over 5 billion views was deleted and replaced with a cover photo showing the apparent hackers. The hackers in the picture are seen to be wearing masks and pointing guns reported by BBC.

 

That’s not all

The hackers, referring to themselves as Prosox and Kuroi’sh, defaced more than a dozen artists’ videos. Some of the known artists include: Shakira, Selena Gomez, Drake and Adele. The hacker identified as “Prosox” also tweeted saying: “@YouTube it’s just for fun I just use script ‘YouTube-change-title-video’ and I write ‘hacked’ don’t judge me I love YouTube <3”. Vevo can confirm that several videos were subject to a security breach, which has now been contained.

 

What Does This Mean?

No matter how big the company or business is, cybersecurity is essential. Modern day hackers are not only smarter but have access to more powerful tools than ever used before. Cybersecurity is today’s top industry worry and will most likely be this way for some time to come.
