YouTube users targeted by massive wave of account hijackings

A massive wave of account hijackings has affected YouTube creators and users, with a specific focus seemingly being placed on automotive content creators, ZDNet reports.

The hacks are due to a phishing scam that appears to be a coordinated, wide-reaching campaign by numerous hackers to attain as many login details as possible.

Even users who have two-factor authentication enabled appear to be at risk.

Life of Palos believes that this is because the malicious parties may be using Modlishka, which is a phishing toolkit which can intercept two-factor authentication SMS codes.

Hopefully the Google Authenticator is still ok? I use that and backup codes.

Not that I have anything worth stealing.
