A YouTube Channel Hacked and Renamed to Tesla to Stream Crypto Scam

A Twitter user named TheOriginalAce, Tweeted and informed his followers that his YouTube channel named Legobuilder9000 was hacked on April 21.

According to him the hacker changed the channel name to “Tesla” and streamed some crypto scam for about 6 hours. Interestingly he said he managed to recover the account and fixed everything that the hacker changed in his YouTube channel.

But unfortunately, as soon soon as he recovered and changed things back to normal, he got a mail from YouTube that his YouTube channel has been permanently suspended.

He further Tweeted today that he has sorted everything with YouTube and his YouTube channel is back up. According to him everything is the way it was before the hack.

Previously in January 2022, there was two hacks reported in which the hacker hacked official Twitter accounts and renamed it to Elon Musk. The hacker did same thing by hacking the Twitter account. The hacker promoted crypto scam from the hacked Twitter accounts.

This can be a major reason why Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter. He even Tweeted yesterday that if he wins the bid, he will defeat the spam bots or he will die trying.
