A large number of high-profile music videos have been defaced on Youtube; which has now fallen victim to potential hackers.
Vevo's channel was hacked, not YouTube: causes biggest video ever to disappear: Well, online security is being myth nowadays because every single thing is getting hacked and people are feeling insecure about these all things.
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 cover image of the video was replaced with an image of masked gang members wielding guns and the description of the video changed by hackers calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh.
The Spanish-language hit "Despacito" was released in January 2017 and went on to break several records in music streaming, including one for the single with the most weeks at No.1 in the United States, with 16 consecutive weeks. Music videos for other major artists including Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Shakira, Drake, Selena Gomez and more also had their titles changed to say that they were "Hacked by Prosox" with thumbnails being changed too. Vevo further stated that "We are working to reinstate all videos affected and our catalogue to be restored to full working order".

The hackers are claiming they used a "script" for the hack.
