‘Sesame Street’ on YouTube resumes after hacking
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) — The YouTube channel for the popular children's television show "Sesame Street" is back online after hackers forced its shutdown for a day by loading X-rated material.
Carol-Lynn Parente, "Sesame Street's" executive producer, said Monday that YouTube had taken the channel down Sunday after noticing the racy material. The channel usually carries new and vintage clips from the preschool program.
Ms. Parente said it appears that the X-rated videos were online for less than an hour and that "Sesame Street" had received no viewer complaints.
She said, "We have great hopes that it was found out" before young viewers could see the X-rated material.
YouTube said it counsels clients to adopt tougher security to avoid hackers.
The channel resumed at around midday Monday.
