Top 20 Bermuda Youtube Channels In January

This week it was revealed that malicious YouTube ads were ‘cryptojacking’ people’s computers.

According to Ars Technica, the ads were using people’s “CPUs end electricity to generate digital currency on behalf of anonymous hackers.”

“YouTube was likely targeted because users are typically on the site for an extended period of time,” independent security researcher Troy Mursch told Ars. “This is a prime target for crypto jacking malware because the longer the users are mining for cryptocurrency, the more money is made.”

The crypto jacking targeted people through Google’s DoubleClick advertising service. The ads had a mining code called CoinHive that used as much as 80% of user’s CPU.

Locally, not much changed in Bermuda’s Top 20 YouTube channels with Collie Buddz, Bernews, Thirdstory, BIOS and Dr Cindy Trimm remaining firm in the top five spots.

    And thanks to Google’s crazy international rules, I believe Bermudians are not entitled to their earned money from views. I have a channel too with over 100,000 views but I cannot get paid for said reason. There is a chance I could be wrong, and let’s hope! It would be interesting to see input from other channel owners on whether they get paid or not. It is amazing to see other Bermudians with over a million views, good job!
