Fishing YouTuber Hacked

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone else here has watched Robert (Rob) Terkla's videos at his LunkersTV YouTube channel, but it appears he was hacked this morning or last night.  They are deleting his videos and posting garbage videos with links to their own websites, so be careful about clicking on anything that might be listed because you could be opening yourself up to a virus or something.  Rob posted on Twitter that he was aware of the hack, so hopefully YouTube can help him get it resolved quickly.

I saw it right after it happened. Hope it gets cleared up soon. BTW the comments under the videos the dude has been posting are hilarious :D

LOL, I think it's actually related to the gaming league he plays a big part in.  When I searched the group claiming responsibility it said they usually hack gaming site/accounts. 

I'm kind of surprised he hasn't made a video with one of the other guys addressing it on their channel.  He's probably pretty busy getting this straightened out, though.  Stinks he has to deal with it at all.

I'm not sure how many of you watch the Googan squad on YouTube I'm not even sure most of the ppl here are into YouTube. I watch a lot of YouTube shows and some are better than shows you see on tv. I have been trying to watch lunkers tv which is one good channel for bass fisherman, dude seems like a class act. Well I couldn't believe the vulnerability theses you tubers have threw hackers lunkers tv seems to be shut down by hackers and it just kind of makes me think how we are all vulnerable to this type of crime.

   It's a sad situation when some one who is trying to make a living making content that we all enjoy to have hackers that compromise the way some one makes a living, making good entertaining bass fishing shows. Theses are just my thoughts.

He got the channel back, finally. He did lose several thousand subscribers due to the trashy content that the hackers put up.
