Vevo's YouTube account was likely hacked which resulted in music videos such as Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito", which also happens to be the most-viewed video on YouTube, being defaced. Vevo has an enormous catalog of artists' videos in its stable and it could take some time to restore them all. Videos from Adele, Chris Brown, DJ Snake, Drake, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Shakira, and Taylor Swift were reportedly also hacked. The report said the video's images were first altered and replaced with a masked gang holding guns and the description was changed by hackers named Prosox and Kuroi'sh, who wrote "Free Palestine" underneath the videos.
It's not all that often we hear of a big hack on any of Google's major platforms, but today YouTube has seemingly fallen to hackers, at least to a small extent. The Verge reports that some of the videos from the aforementioned singers were available with defaced titles and thumbnail images. The video-hosting site says it's still recovering from the hack and investigating its source.

All the affected videos are uploaded to Vevo YouTube account of the artist. "We are working to reinstate all videos affected and (for) our catalogue to be restored to full working order".
