Notorious hacker group OurMine is up to its old tricks, this time taking down several high-profile YouTube accounts and trolling millions of fans around the world in the latest in a long line of digital PR stunts.

“We have no bad intentions and only care about the security and privacy of your accounts and network,” OurMine states on its website. The group claimed it was the “biggest hack in YouTube history.”

This latest hack closely followed the group’s MO: video titles were changed to read “#OurMine,” while video descriptions were altered to inform YouTubers and subscribers alike of the group’s well-meaning troll.

“Hey, it’s OurMine, don’t worry we are just testing your security, please contact us for more information,” the group wrote.

In somewhat of a Pyrrhic victory, OurMine has struggled to manage the uptick in visitors to its website since the hack, however.
