Sesame Street Letter X Hack Puts Porn On YouTube Page

Bert & ErnieSo far as subversive pranks go, this one doesn’t seem especially anti-establishment. How about hacking some banks’ YouTube pages instead? CNN reports on the juvenile shocker:

Hackers appeared to have commandeered the YouTube page of the venerable “Sesame Street” children’s show Sunday, reprogramming the page with content brought to you by the letter “X.”

The show page was taken offline Sunday afternoon, and visitors were greeted with a message from the video website informing them it had been shut down “due to repeated or severe violations of our community guidelines.” Users who called up the account earlier had found explicit sex videos instead of Muppets.

    classic Trolling. like when they hacked the epilepsy association forums and placed tons of flashing lights on posts. Must have been 4chan trolls as the random attacks with no meaning are their calling card. In a way they are trying to reveal vulnerabilities but yes that is going over the top.

    Hackers do whatever the hell they want, who are we to tell them what they should hack? You guys are idiots for believing that all hackers care to steal things, as opposed to just pissing people off and getting a laugh.

    The BEST this hacker can do is put porn on sesame street’s youtube??? What a fucking waste of time and talent. Try putting your skills to better use, say humiliating a large bank.

    What a wanker.
