Electronics etc Youtuber Heliox channel hacked
« on: May 02, 2020, 10:36:36 pm »
I had a weird "Tesla BTC" channel at the top of my subscriptions with some live stream of Elon and such.  That was weird, then I looked into it and it's actually Heliox who is a (French) youtuber I sub to, a fairly big channel, who does interesting electronics and assorted makery stuff.

Translated to english...

Here's what the hacker has done to her channel...

has happened to a lot of channels lately, always the same; streaming some random interview to make it look legit with a link to some site where you can send bitcoins and Bill Gates etc. will send you double back ...
