Just five days earlier, Luis Fonsi’s viral Despacito music video earned the title of world’s most watched video on YouTube with more than 5bn views. 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.”

The videos remain unchanged, However, the content of videos including titles and thumbnails were changed.
