4chan, Ebaumsworld Launch Porn Attack Against YouTube

Jonas Brothers fans and those looking for marblecake recipes on YouTube may get more than they bargained for today. That's because 4chan and eBaum's World have teamed up for "Operation Porn Day," which involves uploading explicit video clips to YouTube using innocuous tags.

Many of the clips have already been removed, but according to Arstechnica, it was able to find others that haven't yet been caught (still reading?). In addition to the false tags, a lot of the clips contain 20 to 30 seconds of seemingly legitimately content, such as a newscast, before getting down and dirty.

"It may take some time for video search results and thumbnail images to disappear from the site," Google spokesperson Scott Rubin said . "Typically, this should not take more than a couple of days, but the videos themselves are no longer viewable."

In other words, you may want to keep your kids and nephews occupied with something other than YouTube for the time being.
