Microsoft's YouTube Channel Hacked

Microsoft’s official YouTube channel was hacked earlier today and all of the content removed. Details of the hacking are sketchy, ranging from a publicity stunt by Microsoft, a disgruntled ex-employee, to the original owner of the URL reclaiming his site through a backdoor left open by Microsoft.

The attack comes just a week after hackers broke into the Sesame Street YouTube channel, and replaced its child-friendly content with hardcore pornographic movies.
