Youtube appears to be hacked by hackers today, as a result, a number of high-profile, popular and hits music videos has been deleted or defaced. The most viewed Youtube videos of all the times, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” disappeared from YouTube today after being defaced by hackers.
The video’s image was altered and replaced with a masked gang holding guns (from Netflix show Casa de Papel), and the description was changed by hackers calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi’sh.
Lots of other popular music videos have also disappeared, including songs from Chris Brown, Shakira, DJ Snake, Selena Gomez, Drake, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift.
One of the hackers claimed that he hacked the Youtube and altered videos using some script in his tweet.
