Turns Out There’s Loads Of Secret Porn On YouTube

 

Like a 21st century Marlow, increasing numbers of us are going on a dangerous journey to the heart of YouTube’s darkness – discovering in those hidden depths exactly what you would expect on the Internet: a hell of a lot of porn.

Pirates have begun using the site’s video hosting services to host adult videos. And there appears to be little that Google, which owns the website, can do about it.

Normally when someone posts content that belongs to someone else it gets flagged and removed by Content-ID software, which checks the video for copyrighted content. It then automatically removes it if it breaches their guidelines.

Pirates however have managed to dodge the system by not publicly listing videos, meaning that administrators are unable see the content and so don’t take it down.

This leaves hackers able to embed the content onto their own websites, while they still get the traffic and ad revenue, without paying for video hosting.

The loophole allows users to post content that would normally get flagged by the system, including pirated films and pornography.

It’s likely that YouTube will eventually take the content down but these hidden videos tend to stay up a lot longer than they should.
