KKR YouTube Channel Hacked?
Yesterday, all of a sudden there were live streaming about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, which is understandably complete irrelevant to the IPL franchise and their video contents. The video was about Michael J Saylor speaking about Bitcoins. Channel Link – https://www.youtube.com/c/kolkataknightriders
As it’s seen in the channel, the Kolkata Knight Riders Youtube name is changed to Michael J. Saylor [MicroStrategy]. Michael J. Saylor is an entrepreneur in American and a business executive, who co-founded and leads MicroStrategy. Though the live streaming video had only voice-overs without him/anyone appearing the video directly.
On following up with this issue today, it’s seen that the YouTube account shows terminated and the videos are not appearing in the YouTube anymore. As we see in the below video link uploaded in the YouTube is shared on Twitter navigates to shows, “This video no longer available because the YouTube account associated with the video has been terminated”.
