There is something awfully wrong about Google’s security these days as one after another top YouTubers are getting their channels hacked. Recently, the world renowned video channel WatchMojo and gaming commenter Redmercy had their accounts hacked and now the latest victim of this hacking spree is Lilly Singh, an online celebrity with a massive following social media.

It’s still unclear how both of her accounts were hacked but it seems Lilly was doing a similar mistake like WatchMojo and Redmercy and that was using the same password on all of their accounts leading them to hack other social accounts. Anyhow her team was quick to get hold of her YouTube account having 9 million followers but it took them a while to restore her Twitter account with 1.48 million followers.

An important point to ponder here is that the hackers behind WatchMojo and Redmercy accounts didn’t post any status on their Twitter handle about hacking Lilly’s social media accounts, however, Lilly herself tweeted and mention the term ”poodle” which takes us to the conclusion that Poodle Corp was behind the hacking of her accounts. Remember, Poodle Corp was behind the hacking of WatchMojo and Redmercy.
