ITP reports YouTube security issue

ITP today reported the YouTube security issue that this blogger wrote about on 19th April 2008. That’s 5 days after I discovered it! [That’s another reason why you should subscribe to this blog.] 🙂

ITP has confirmed my initial doubts over the cause of the issue – incorrect web caching by the ISP – Etisalat, in this case. Even thought I had written to YouTube regarding the issue, they have not responded to me till this date – neither have they responded to ITP. Etisalat had even gone to the extent of making my blog mysteriously unavailable in the UAE, the day after I posted about the problem.

    We have noticed this issue on the 10th of April, checked it out, then tried to replicate it at our office, which has Du internet connection, but it was not there.
    Fadi Ozone, editor at Windows magazine Arabic reported this on our Arabic website: itp.net/arabic and contacted Google team who are working on it now.
