London (ANI): Canadian singer Justin Bieber was recently targeted
by cruel Internet pranksters. Hackers infiltrated his YouTube page
and fans were allegedly fed false reports the singer had died in a
car crash, while others were redirected to porn sites.
Bieber fans were shocked to see his page on the video-sharing
website that was redirected to clips which reported the singer had
died. However, bosses at Internet search engine Google, which owns
YouTube, took immediate action to correct the problem that was
fixed in a couple of hours, reports The Daily Star.
"We took swift action to fix a vulnerability on Youtube.com that
was discovered several hours ago. Comments were temporarily hidden
by default within an hour, and we released a complete fix for the
issue in about two hours. We're continuing to study the
vulnerability to help prevent similar issues in the future," a
statement from Google read.
