Vevo confirms hackers pulled down most-viewed video from YouTube

Hackers calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'SH took to Twitter on Tuesday to brag about the disruption to Google’s popular video-sharing platform
As detailed by the BBC, the videos for several hit songs, including "Despacito", were defaced - the Despacito video has since been removed but the cover image featured a group wearing masks and pointing guns. Videos from Adele, Chris Brown, DJ Snake, Drake, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Shakira, and Taylor Swift were reportedly also hacked. The video, which has been viewed over five billion times, has since reappeared on Fonsi's Vevo-linked YouTube account.
A Twitter account that apparently belonged to one of the hackers had posted: "It's just for fun, I just use [the] script "youtube-change-title-video" and I write "hacked".
When you tried clicking on the thumbnail, the video was unavailable. The titles mainly have been changed to add "Hacked by Prosox" or "Hacked by Kuroi". It's also not clear if the hackers have gained access to the individual accounts or if there has been a widespread exploit with the Vevo accounts.
The Independentreports that the cyber attack began when the names of numerous most popular music videos on YouTube appeared to have their names changed. "We are working to reinstate all videos affected and (for) our catalogue to be restored to full working order".
The hackers, calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh, had replaced some of the videos' titles with their own messages, including a call to "free Palestine" alongside their own nicknames.
"We are continuing to investigate the source of the breach", spokesperson Anthi Pantelidis said in an email. The Independent believes the hackers could only change the names and thumbnails of videos, rather than delete them. Outside of music videos, others have been affected as well, so it's unclear if there was a target in mind for this.
