[SOLVED] Various LMG channels on YT hacked

Quick note:

https://linustechtips.com/announcement/ … ls-hacked/

For those unfamiliar with LMG, it's a 100+staff Vancouver (Can) based media-house that operates popular YT channels like LTT. Somehow scammers have gained access to the YT accounts of several channels LMG operates and are now actively promoting crypto-scams. DO NOT fall for these scams, crypto is essentially dead (as it should be, IMO).

This thread is not about how popular Linus is or how much you loath him for whatever reason. If that's your only contribution to this thread, please don't. In any case, normal forum rules still apply, so be civil. smile

Quick note to inform those interested LMG has their channels back. Source of the issue was a "prepped" PDF opened by an unsuspecting team member who happened to have some session cookies the scammers were able to steal and exploit.

I have no interest in watching a video.

A malicious PDF means a vulnerability in whatever displays the PDFs - a quick search suggests they were running Google Chrome and/or Microsoft Edge, both of which come with PDF reader embedded.
