YouTube, Vevo Respond To Major Music Video Hack
Hackers hit many of the most popular music videos on Vevo and YouTube overnight; and both are responding saying that while it serves as the delivery system for Vevo, it was the later that was hacked, not YouTube.
“After seeing unusual upload activity on a handful of VEVO channels," Google's YouTube said in a statement provided to Hypebot, "we worked quickly with our partner to disable access while they investigate the issue.”
"Vevo can confirm that a number of videos in its catalogue were subject to a security breach today, which has now been contained," Vevo said in their own statement. "We are working to reinstate all videos affected and our catalogue to be restored to full working order. We are continuing to investigate the source of the breach.”
