Right now are multiple YouTube accounts hacked by someone who calls himself _Dexerty_
It goes from total random accounts to big accounts like Rihanna, Yogscast and Pewdiepie.

Found this out by myself but to find a lot of accounts affected by this can you search for it on Google.

The accounts have not been hacked, this _Dexerty_ had found a glitch in the new YouTube One Channel which has allowed him to go into any channel and change their BIO's, and only their BIO's. Nothing else.

Hardly a hack, more a lucky find if you ask me.

If Google hasn't closed that exploit by now they will soon. That doesn't happen often with Google products.
