Not only Vevo many other popular artists’ accounts also hacked. Including songs from Chris Brown, Shakira, DJ Snake, Selena Gomez, Drake, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift. Hackers have reposted those defected videos to Vevos account. Still it is not confirmed whether hackers have gained individual access to accounts or it is a wider exploit.

Hackers have renamed the titles with their own messages with their nick names and also they have called for “free palastine”. A twitter account says “It is just for fun , I used the script ‘youtube-change-title-video’ and I write ‘hacked’ “. This is not the first time Vevo’s account hacked. They have faced a previous beach on 2017 as well.

Experts says hackers cannot change the title and upload images without the proper authorization token. Either they have gained access to the token or they have found another way around for access.

Vevo have stated they are working to reinstate their account and structuring the catalog for working order. And also they mentioned that they also working to find out the source of breach.
