Rings Of Saturn’s YouTube Channel Gets Overtaken By Hackers Promoting Food And Card Games


Technical death metal group Rings Of Saturn recently found out one of their officially authorized YouTube channels has been hacked. In a bizarre twist, it is currently being used to promote streams of what looks to be a food truck restaurant and card games. Furthering the confusion, the unwanted additions to the channel appear to feature a mixture of Korean and Swedish languages as well.

While not the official YouTube home of the aforementioned group, the compromised channel is instead authorized ‘topic’ channel overseen by their distributor Tunecore. If you’ve been on YouTube channel for awhile, there’s a good chance you’ve run across the ‘topic’ channel of popular musical artists.

Those channels are usually set up by a digital music distributor with approval from the artist to post their various works on the service, thus providing an official way to stream them.

Rings Of Saturn outlined their case on Twitter amid an appeal to YouTube to get the issue resolved:
