Youtube leak
« on: July 04, 2010, 01:51:00 pm »
Hi everyone,

Just wanted to make aware of this:



There apparently are some very sad people that have found a hack on youtube. It makes them possible to execute their own scripts (even Javascript, how appaling is that!). Some may just block all comments and put up some stupid messages, some redirect you to some nasty sites. I haven't seen it on EEVblog video's (yet).. but it may happen (I see it on some other blogs about cars, that have about the same view count on video's).

Apparently youtube hasn't responded to this yet, and haven't made a fix yet. This guy is suggesting the owner of the channel should block off these people. The problem is it's hard because people can just create a new account. Disabling comments for new video's is a though call as well..

Well, it seems to be fixed now:



Before all further comments were unreadable. Now it just shows some code.
