Since last year, youtube geek developers have been refining and improving how youtube works. Defending it from blackhatters/hackers who are trying to exploit every possible way to make their vids popular. Simple math will tell you that youtube has millions of viewer everyday, having your video popular can bring you the stepping ground for a skyrocketing fame – If you’re an entrepreneur? Then attracting a lot of viewers means a bigger pot of cash on your end.
All the while, youtube promises that their humungous video-streaming site is hack-free.
Today, it seems there’s a glitch that’s creating a buzz around which begs the question, “Can you youtube really be hacked?”
Somehow it even crept out to be the no.1 the alltime most viewed video ousting “charlie bit my finger” (147,246,806 views only) and some of the vids that made mankind go wow! like Susan Boyle’s phenomenal performance (84,765,146 views only) – click to enlarge
The video was posted since September 06, 2009. Looking at this person’s eye-pricking profile, it won’t help either on justifying if this person was a hacker or not.
It’s still too early to tell if this was really a hack or just a glitch from youtube’s gargantuan database – producing such error on the view count.
At this moment, youtube has no official statement for this so-called ‘hack/glitch’ but expect that this will receieve a proper reviewing now that this particular video has been reported on many techblogs.
We’ll keep you guys posted for the official score on this one.
