Hackers take down Despacito and other popular VEVO videosApril 10, 2018
A couple of hackers have teamed to deface the most viewed YouTube video of all time, Despacito, just for fun.
The hackers replaced the thumbnail image of the video with a still of a gun. Beneath the videos, the hackers wrote “Free Palestine”. This includes videos from many other artists who were affected.
The videos that were hacked were originally uploaded by VEVO. VEVO was also hacked towards the end of last year. In that breach a ton of sensitive data was leaked.
Despacito has about as many internet haters as Justin Bieber. These hackers took it to themselves to do the internet a favor.
The videos have since been restored. Now that there Despacito has been in the news again, expect 100M more views in the next weeks.
