Young Beliebers were exposed to pornography after hackers attacked a bunch of Justin Bieber’s YouTube pages yesterday. Fans were also directed to videos saying the 16-year-old pop star had died in a car accident.
Hackers changed the sound on one video to a voice-over falsely reporting that the teenager had died, while other YouTube pages featured pop-up windows of pornography websites and explicit videos.
A report in the Daily Telegraph said Internet forum 4Chan is believed to have been responsible for the attacks, but other mischief makers apparently joined in once the hacks were discovered.
YouTube said it was working to fix the problem as soon as possible.
