Google: Youtubers, Be Careful! Accounts are Hacked


Youtube: Cybercriminals are hacking the account of YouTubers like this. Google has told about a phishing campaign that is targeting YouTubers.

Under this, 15,000 fake accounts and more than 1 million messages have been found, which were prepared to target YouTubers.

According to Google, phishing attacks are being made by different hackers. With this type of attack, hackers were not only hacking the account of YouTubers, but they were also infecting the users’ computers with malware.


YouTube Accounts are Been Hacked

By targeting the computer with malware, the hackers were getting the login details of their other accounts as well. YouTubers are implicated by falsely pretending the campaign and then hacking.

Hackers were hacking the accounts of YouTubers by creating a campaign. Campaigns were also created for this. The focus of this campaign was YouTube accounts.

Google has also posted a screenshot of the advertisement that was made for this hacking. Hackers used to approach YouTubers for ads as salespersons.


Hackers also used to give good deals to YouTubers. For example, to promote VPN, to promote anti-virus or to promote any software on their channel, they used to finalize deals.

If the creator agreed, then he used to give the link to him. He had to click to open it, and after that, his computer was infected with malware.

The malware was designed to steal cookies and passwords from the target computer. Once the cookies of YouTube users are in the hacker’s hands, they can take over the account.


Since YouTube and other Google services are accessible from Gmail, other accounts linked to Gmail can also be hacked after hacking Gmail. These include Google Drive, Photos Bha.

According to Google, hackers hack someone’s YouTube account and sell it for lakhs of rupees. It depends on how many subscribers the account has.

Our advice to YouTubers is to verify any ad campaign before accepting it. Do not click the link in a hurry because you can lose your YouTube account by doing so.
