    I don’t know if this has been reported by the mainstream yet but I wanted to bring everyone’s attention to it.

    There’s some exploit going around on YouTube, it starts with the hacker posting ‘want to be friends’ in a sub 4 sub proposition in the comment box. If you follow them then they exploit a vulnerability (possibly via OAuth) and can compromise you taking over your google account.

    They then use your YouTube on the sly to generate money by creating a huge botnet of view bots.

    The hack shows up as a third party application you didn’t approve:

    CHECK YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT SECURITY ASAP!

    It was recommended to disconnect any weird services that pop up.

    Here is a YouTube video explaining the background:

    Good luck and stay safe!

    When anger trawls the internet,
    Looking for a hook;
    It's time to disconnect,
    And go read a book.

    well luckily that’s a vector I’m not susceptible to but still good to know.

    Nice to see SOG get some rep. Dude often covers tech news and tech safety in vids. Also scary stuff
