What are some hacking songs

Very few authorities and citizens are afraid of this hacker attack: An attack on the YouTube video platform took place during the night. The goal was the music video for the 2017 summer and world hit “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

For a few hours, the video, which now has more than 5 billion views and was also the most clicked video in Germany in 2017, was no longer available. The attackers broke into VEVO's account and deleted the clip. They worked under the pseudonyms Prosox and Kuroi’sh (incidentally, a “feat. Daddy Yankee” would also fit at this point) and did not only take on “Despacito”. Videos of Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Drake and Shakira were also targeted by the hackers. This is reported by the BBC.

Not the first attack on Vevo

Editor's recommendation

The clips were replaced by messages from the hackers, including demanding freedom for Palestine. The changes on the Vevo channel have now been reversed. A YouTube spokesperson said: "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.

So the incidents are being investigated, in the case of Vevo it is not the first attack. Various files were stolen from the YouTube channel as early as 2017, although they were not yet intended for the public. As a result, music videos by some artists were leaked before their official release.
