Russian hacker could have deleted all videos on YouTube
Russian hacker Kamil Hismatullin had been granted $1,337 from Google to investigate security holes in their systems. This is something Google periodically offers advanced users.

Hismatullin decided to look into the vulnerability of YouTube Creator Studio, a service that lets you easily control your own YouTube channel.

While the Russian hacker studied systems including "live events" and "broadcasting," he shortly found a critical security hole.

- Totally unexpected I discovered a bug that would let me delete any video on Youtube, writes Hismatullin, who have described the process in detail on his blog.

He reported the problem to Google, where full alarm sounded.

- Although it was Saturday morning, Google solved the problem in a few hours. They gave me a reward of $ 5,000, and fortunately no one Bieber videos deleted, Hismatullin writes on his blog.

Google has confirmed that Hismatullin's findings are correct, but has not commented further on the matter.
