Kamil Hismatullin-a security expert discovered a bug that could destroy the whole YouTube video streaming business. This bug gave him access to be able to delete any video by making it think he owned the video- he said.

He discovered this loophole while consulting for the YouTube Creative Studio. He described it as a logical bug that allowed him to delete any video by entering a video ID against any session token.

Kamil was invited by Google to take part in a Vulnerability Research Grant. Lucky for them, he found out the bug.

The bug has since been fixed. See what kamil has to say in this video.
