YouTubers are getting hacked
« on: February 09, 2020, 03:30:16 PM »
YouTubers are getting hacked!

The Anime Youtuber BestGuyEver got hacked like a week ago. I heard the hacker sent BestGuy an email pretending to want paid advertising for his "game" for 500$ to 1500$. But will pay after the video is made(Here is your first big red flag). The game link in the email is a malware that takes over your stuff.
After the hacker takes over, he changes the channel name to "Brad Garlinghouse" then live stream interviews of this Brad guy with free give ways scam in the descriptions

That's Brad Garlinghouse. By the way, Brad is not the hacker. In the comments, people saying F you Brad and not sure if they joking or

Nowadays it seems like clicking links Is like Russian roulette

The gest
So yea, watch out for "I'll pay you after the work is done" 
Watch out for "Send me one crypto I'll send you ten crypto back free give away" scams
As all of us know Don't click questionable links. Look like a bunch of YouTubers fell and still falling for it. YouTube doesn't seem to do anything about it(that I know of)

I just got a notification from DeviantArt warning me from "you won prize" questionable links spam scam. That type of scams is running rampant lately. So be on guard yalls!

Part of me thinks people should know better not to fall for it but on the other hand politicians and CEOs of billions dollars companies are clicking questionable links and falling for this dump hack. What chance we common folks have?

I've had a couple of scam emails on deviant art saying I've won a prize or something. I googled the root website of the link first (something like prizegivaway.com) and I found all the scam complaints.
These days you have to be suspicious of anything that sounds good.
Thanks for the YouTube warning.
