The most watched video in history disappears on YouTube

Por Rory

A computer problem with the account of Vevo, responsible for distributing the official video clips of the artists, causes the success of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, cannot be played on the well-known video channel. A group of cybercriminals attributed the performance, although one of the members said that "I only wanted to change the titles".

A group of cybernetic pirates calling themselves Prosox and Kuroi'sh has hacked the Vevo music channel on YouTube. One of the victims of these pirates has been the most watched video in the history of the service, 'Despacito', reviews The Verge. They have replaced it with their own video with images from the popular Spanish series 'La casa de papel'. In the scene, you can see men with masked faces who carry weapons. The Hacker News portal has spread through screenshots of content affected by hacking, showing modified titles of songs that cite the list of alleged perpetrators of the attack. Several media suggest that the description of the recording read "Free Palestine."

Subsequently, the clip has been deleted. In addition, as a result of these attacks on Vevo have been hacked other popular clips of several famous artists, including Shakira, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Drake. YouTube and the Vevo channel have not yet commented on what happened. "It's just for fun and I only use the 'youtube-change-title-video' script and I write 'hacked'. Do not judge me I love YouTube," a Twitter user named Prosox, the possible cyberpirate, has indicated in a post.

In early April, the video of the song 'Despacito' by the singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee became the first to reach 5,000,000 hits on YouTube. The song achieved that milestone in just over a year, as it was uploaded to that platform on January 12, 2017. On average, that melody of the Puerto Rican musicians reproduced more than 11 million times a day. The video clip, which was recorded in just 14 hours, became YouTube's most watched video last October when it surpassed 4,000 million visits.

After knowing this situation, social networks have been filled with comments from users, some of them even celebrated that "Despacito", last year's song, has been temporarily removed from the most popular video channels.
