Apparently, YouTube is hacked by hackers going with Twitter handle @ProsoxW3b and he managed to delete video along with few other popular video clips.

However, as per the latest development, the deleted videos have been restored on the website. Earlier, after the hack, Despacito video showed a thumbnail with masked people holding guns. After clicking the video, it said: “This video is unavailable.”

Below the hacked videos, the hackers wrote “Free Palestine.” Called themselves Prosox and Kuroi’sh, they changed the URLs of the videos as “x – Hacked by Prosox and Kuroi’sh.”
