Yesterday, we reported a breach where a most of the YouTube videos from the channel of Vevo, a popular music video hosting platform, including the YouTube's most watched video of "Despacito" song with over 5 billion views was reportedly hacked. The video's image was changed and replaced with a masked gang holding guns and the hackers altered the description, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh. In some videos, they were exactly their but the hacker changed the name, and other things on the video. Among the affected music videos was Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Despacito, which now holds the title for YouTube's most viewed video of all time, coming in at over five billion views.
Among the videos affected was "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi, which is now the most-watched YouTube video of all time, with more than five billion views. This morning, quite a lot of high-profile music videos had their titles and thumbnails changed, forcing some artists to go as far as taking the videos down.

Apple also invests in other clean energy projects around the globe and the firm has 25 such projects in operation. This is up from 14 in 2016 and includes names like Finisar and Pegatron , a key iPhone assembler.
In admitting to be the hacker, most people aren't all that upset. In the whole controversy YouTube, which is owned by search engine giant Google already cleared the air and confirmed that the problem centered on Vevo, not by Youtube itself.
"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", a spokeswoman for YouTube told the BBC. "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", said the spokesperson.
Mark James, security specialist at ESET, said the details now surrounding the hack are sparse, so trying to figure out those responsible did or how they did it is not something that's easily done.
