A South Korean government-owned YouTube channel named SpaceX Invest has been hacked, with the channel uploading creative videos of Elon Musk discussing cryptocurrencies.
On September 3, a South Korean government YouTube channel was temporarily hacked and renamed to share crypto-related videos live. But with early intervention, the bill was restored within four hours, a Yonhap News Service (YNA) local report confirmed.

Compromised ID and YouTube channel password were identified as the main reason for the hack. Google has also reportedly confirmed the deal.
