YouTube has terminated the account of Sansad TV, the channel that shows live broadcasts of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha proceedings, after hackers attacked the handle in the early hours of Tuesday. At the time of writing this report, the account remained suspended “for violating YouTube's community guidelines.”

In an official statement, Parliament of India said that the YouTube Channel of Sansad TV was compromised due to unauthorised activities by some scamsters on February 15 at 01:00 a.m. The attackers changed the name of the handle to ‘Ethereum’.

“However, Sansad TV's social media team promptly worked on it and got the Sansad TV Channel restored by early morning at around 03:45 am,” the statement read.

Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), the nodal agency for responding to cyber security incidents in India, has also reported the above incident and alerted Sansad TV.

“However, later on, YouTube has started fixing the security threats permanently and it shall be restored ASAP,” the statement further said.
