Man, I would hate to be in a situation where the platform you use to speak to your audience/make a living from is hacked and defaced. Hope they get it resolved soon.

It wasn't that long ago that he said he used to use "the hard R" pretty often and that it was normal back (being 2003/2004) then. And now his youtube channels are hard F'ed.

 

I have heard that people can access your session cookies if you open a malicious PDF in your google drive and that this is something that's been happening for a few months. If this is how they got the Linus Group, then there is no excuse for it not being fixed by now.

He meant "*", not the "n" word. 

 

I still say * all the time, mostly to my cats. 

 

Ok so there's a filter here apparently 😅

Literally never heard anyone call it a "hard r". They just call it the "r word" these days, so that's weird.

Good to see they got back up, watched their video on the hack...I forgot about the session exploitation, I have to admit.

I was really surprised that wasn't implemented on YT/Google. They really should look at those partners as what they often are; multi-million dollar partners and put in place a lot more safeguards, features, effort into supporting them. I feel like YouTube/Google still gets a pass for some reason on the incompetent things they do because of how laid-back everything used to be.
