Baby, baby, baby oh… It appears Justin Bieber is the latest victim of the eBaums, a group highly controversial for using the content from other websites without permission or citing the sources and rebranding them with the eBaum’s World logo.
This time around eBaums targetted Bieber, and found a HTML vulnerability in the comment section of Youtube to do it.
Youtube took the matter into its own hands and quickly disabled all comments using such HTML vulnerability. Below is the official statement released by Google on the incident:
“We took swift action to fix a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability on youtube.com that was discovered several hours ago. Comments were temporarily hidden by default within an hour, and we released a complete fix for the issue in about two hours. We’re continuing to study the vulnerability to help prevent similar issues in the future”
