Just earlier few days ago, Twitter accounts of a number of the foremost prominent people including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Warren Buffet, Barack Obama, Joe Biden along with Bill Gates were hacked. Almost all of these accounts tweeted out some similar bitcoin message asking people to donate via a specific URL.
Now, one among the foremost famous Indian YouTuber Carryminati aka Ajey Nagar goes via some similar ordeal. His YouTube channel Carryislive was hacked during the early hours of Saturday. He took to Twitter to invite for assistance from YouTube.
Nagar tweeted, “@YouTubeIndia My channel Carryislive has been hacked, need immediate assistance (sic).”
Twitter account of YouTube India was also quick to reply and they even left a comment that read, “We’re really sorry this happened. Mind following us so we will continue with next steps over DM (sic)?”
Similar to the Twitter hack, Carryminati’ YouTube account also asked his fans to donate Bitcoin [BTC] through a specific URL.
The hacker changed the outline of the YouTube video and details associated with the accounts for donation and bitcoin popped up instead.
Carryislive is Ajey Nagar’s second YouTube account on which he only posts gaming videos. This didn’t go unnoticed by his fans and #Carryminati started trending on Twitter.
