If you are very familiar with the YouTube, then you’d know that Justin Bieber was one of the most famous YouTube artists. The videos of Justine Bieber go over millions due to his popularity. His YouTube fad has even reached the music industry’s mainstream that at this moment, he hits the top charts for music.

But these days, YouTube seems to be having some weird and troublesome “features”. This is specifically applied the Justin Bieber videos which are some of the most viewed videos in YouTube. Variations of actions were initiated once a user visits. There are three results that could be brought upon by the said hacking. The first setup is that when you visit a Bieber video, you will be redirected to another site- an explicit site known as One Man One Jar. The second result will be a simpler one. After visiting the video, the screen will be covered with the phrase OMG Faggot. But the most intriguing result would be the third setup. After opening the video page, there will be a report delivered saying that Justin Bieber just died this morning and to visit the CNN for more details.
These hackings and results seem to be very intriguing. Why are they doing this? Who are these people? Are they Justin Bieber haters or simply people who have nothing to do? No one really knows. The only thing that was discovered was that the jacking was made through the commenting feature of YouTube. Codes seem to appear on the comments which do not have anything to do with the videos.
The said suspect was finally revealed – 4chan bulletin board site has been claiming that it has done the said hacking. Boastfully, the site said that they had shaken the internet’s foundation and that it is easy for them to rock YouTube. Meanwhile, Google has taken the necessary precautions. With fixing the cross-site scripting, they were able to manage the problem.
