Update: Actually it looks like this is a humorous error that pops up from time to time on the website. There are videos going back as far as 2007 with the same screen.
Earlier this morning Youtube was hacked. Currently there isnâ€™t much information on the situation. If you were up earlier this morning and trying to check out some videos you may have gotten an youtube internal 500 error. A message that read a team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation. This is what the screen looked like:
This isnâ€™t the first time Youtube has been hacked. Back in December 2009 Shane Dawnson and other Youtubers complained when Youtube went down due to several prominent accounts getting hacked. As of late as well Youtube has been going down during different periods of the day. Perhaps this is in retaliation due to the new youtube layout. Many youtube users have been complaining about.
The point Iâ€™m trying to make is that this is nothing new. Youtube has been having issues for awhile. Youtube Personality Philip De Franco just did a vlog a few weeks ago on how he views the Youtube situation. He depends on it for some income but at the same time he is well aware of the issues and people who have been on youtube for a long time are quite aware of it.
There needs to be some improvements made to the service that is obvious. Maybe with this hack Google and Youtube will update their code and get the site to run a little better. With less hassle and better quality and customer service for those who use the service. Were you surprised this morning by the Youtube Hack Internal 500 error:a team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation?
