YouTube's most watched video ever, Despacito, disappears thanks to Vevo hack

Vevo's YouTube account hack hits popular music videos, causes biggest video ever to disappear

One of the defaced videos was "Despacito". Among the videos deleted was the most-viewed YouTube video of all time, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito". "Seriously, if you search for any music video on YouTube, it'll be hosted by "(Artist) VEVO".

A Twitter account claiming to belong to Prosox said: "Its just for fun i just use script "youtube-change-title-video" and i write "hacked" don t judge me i love youtube".

Videos by Taylor Swift, Drake and Selena Gomez were also among those affected by the breach. It had five billion views at the time of the hacking and was pulled off the site during the hack.

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. These videos were unchanged, but their titles were edited to contain the names "Prosox" and "Kuroi'sh", and the word "hacked". Vevo further stated that "We are working to reinstate all videos affected and our catalogue to be restored to full working order".

Salman Khan, Bollywood superstar, bailed in poaching case
As he was transferred from Jodhpur to Sirohi on Saturday morning, it was not sure whether he would hear the bail application. Salman's alleged accomplices in the crime, Bollywood stars Saif Ali Khan , Tabu, Neelam and Sonali Bendre were set free.

Update 4/10/18 10:45 AM ET: Vevo has confirmed to Engadget that a "security breach" affected a number of videos, and that it's continuing to look into the cause.

A spokesperson for YouTube issued the following statement: "After seeing unusual upload activity on a handful of Vevo channels, we worked quickly with our partner to disable access while they investigate the issue". It remains unclear if the hackers were able to access the individual Vevo accounts of each artist or if they used a wider exploit to gain access to Vevo accounts.

According to the Independent, a hacker identifying as Kuroi'sh hacked into Twitter accounts run by news organizations last week.
