A few days after the Despacito clip exceeded 5 billion views on YouTube, hackers removed the video from the platform.
Since this morning, the YouTube site is boiling. On Tuesday, April 10, the online video platform was the subject of numerous attacks from an unidentified group of hackers.
Rather than the entire site, it is his branch Vevo, to view clips in high quality, is reached.
If several clip titles were simply replaced by pirate signatures (“Hacked by Kuroi’sh & Prosox”), other videos showed the message “Free Palestine” or videos showing masked men aimed at the camera with weapons.
Among the victims of this computer heist, “Despacito” of Luis Fonsiand Daddy Yankee, the most popular clip in the world with more than 5 billion views, ended up being removed from the Internet by taking his record with him.
