- Apple leaker Jon Prosser's YouTube account was hacked.
- Prosser is one of a handful of high-profile accounts that have been hacked.
- The hack appears to have been going on for a while now.
Famed Apple leaker Jon Prosser recently tweeted that his YouTube channel, Front Page Tech has been hacked. At the time of this writing, the channel's name has been changed to NASA [News], his entire library of videos appear to have been deleted except for a live-streaming bitcoin scam video that currently has 48,000 views.
Prosser believes that this hack was a "complete SIM swap." He and his team no longer have access to the channel at all.
YouTube support did get in touch with Prosser about an hour ago, but the response doesn't provide a whole lot of hope.
Prosser is not the first high-profile YouTube influencer to be attacked. According to esports commentator Rod Breslau, several YouTube channels have been hacked and had their account names changed to such titles as "Elon Musk NASA," "SpaceX NASA" and similar. Breslau first noted this hack on August 3.
Breslau notes that this has been an ongoing issue that YouTube has not yet addressed.
From talking to YouTubers these stolen account bitcoin scams have been going on for months and way longer than the recent Twitter hack, YouTube has yet to address the problem, and they're making people wait weeks to get their account back.
