Microsoft's Official YouTube Channel Has Been Hacked


Hackers have taken control of Microsoft's official YouTube channel, removed the company's videos and replaced them with ones of their own. At the time of writing, the hackers are still uploading new videos to the channel. The ones we have seen so far are typically three or four seconds in length, and typically call on other Internet users to post video responses, create new background images for the channel or provide sponsorship. Another brief video, entitled "Bingo", shows an animated character from what appears to be the "LA Noire" videogame by Rockstar Games, shooting another character in the head.
A message posted on the channel cryptically reads:
"I DID NOTHING WRONG I SIMPLY SIGNED INTO MY ACCOUNT THAT I MADE IN 2006 :/"

Microsoft says in a statement, “We are aware that someone has altered the YouTube channel devoted to Microsoft videos.  We are working with YouTube to rectify the situation.”
A new statement from Microsoft: “We have regained control of the Microsoft channel on YouTube, and we are working to restore all of the original content.  We will continue to work with YouTube to ensure safeguards are in place for the future.”
