According to the recent trends of hacking multiple names appeared to be on the list of hackers, including many renowned names too. Twitter accounts of Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Kim Kardashian, Warren Buffet, and Elon Musk seem to have fallen in the trap of the hacking scam.
Under the scam, multiple tweets were posted asking to transfer a certain amount of BitCoins to an assigned wallet.
This comes with a promised benefit of receiving double the amount once transferred. While these posts reportedly got deleted soon, the scammers then posted scamming tweets in their second round.
Seems like a new name joined the “HACKING LIST”. Ajey Nagar a.k.a. Carry Minati, a famous you tuber runs two-channel namely “Carry Minati” and “CarryIsLive” out which one had fallen prey to hackers. Your tuber’s second channel i.e.
CarryIsLive where he mainly posted gaming videos seems to be hacked by a BitCoin streamer. Under the hack, the hacker changed the description of the particular channel to bitcoin donation content.
The hack was notified by the fans at first. This hack occurred within 2 weeks wherein the twitter handles of Bill Gates and Elon Musk were hacked.
This hack took place early on Saturday. While people were sharing memes and were tweeting about Nagar’s channel, Nagar himself tweeted about the hack and asked YouTube for immediate assistance.
Nagar’s fans solely held You Tube’s privacy measures to be a lag and to show that they shared multiple memes making fun of the hack and YouTube.
Reportedly, the videos posted by the scammers were deleted. It is not clear whether they were deleted by the carrying’s team or was taken down by the YouTube authority.
Seems like Carry’s other channel named Carry Minati is out of risk. But this scam has definitely put youtube security at the question.
This indeed is alarming for all prominent You Tubers who could be next to fall under this scam. Fans have already started trolling for YouTube through memes which unfortunately depicts the harsh reality of YouTube security.
