Youtube is down now. I was browsing through internet and found that my youtube channel is not loading and I thought they have blocked me to access the youtube because of some policy violation. I was worried. Then i ignored this because i had to prepare for a business meeting and started browsing through one of the popular crypto website – buycryptocoin.org. There also i saw that youtube channel video which was embedded was not working.
The Error message which was shown confirmed that the Youtube is hacked. The hackers must be some great minds.
Youtube is Hacked on 17 October 2018 and the error message says monkeys has been dispatched to deal this situation
I mean really it is surprising that a Youtube, being a google product can be down for so long. It is fine if hackers hack it, but even after such long time duration they are not able to fix the issue. Yes, youtube engineers need to work on their security.
First thing is that is very weird that youtube is down. It gets even more surprising that Youtube is down since hours now. In past 24 hrs, youtube graph of problems reported has grown exponentially.
Why Youtube is Down Now
It is clear that on 17 october 2018 Youtube is with hackers and they are putting very annoying messages to the viewers. In fact the messages are annoying to the Youtube employees but may seem funny to the users. The popular message which Youtube Hackers are showing is :
500 Internal Server Error
Sorry, something went wrong.
A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, send them this information as text (screenshots frighten them):
They are poking the Youtube Engineers. Lets wait and watch what happens next. I Hope Youtube is back soon.
