It seems a number of YouTube videos have been defaced by hackers, including one of the most watch videos of all time, at more than 5 billion views. YouTube said it's working witjh its partners to restore and to investigate the issue.

The videos all appear to be official VEVO music videos, a video hosting platform partnered with YouTube and music labels, which could point to a hack that was specifically aimed at compromising VEVO.

I guess that if hackers can defaced such videos, they can also hack youtube's accounts ...
