Smart TV Tech Loophole Allowed Miscreants to View Private YouTube Videos. Security researcher earned a $6,000 bug bounty after uncovering a set of web security flaws that allowed attackers to play supposedly private YouTube videos.
David Schütz (@xdavidhu) reported the privacy weaknesses to YouTube’s parent company Google, which acted promptly to shore up security controls after verifying the problem last July.
This cleared the way in which for Schütz to supply an in-depth technical write-up on the privacy-related concern, which he revealed on Monday (April 5).
