Sonic Stadium’s “The Sonic Show” YouTube Account Victim of Hackingby Tristan Oliver August 16, 2011
Nearly Entire 5 Year Archive of Video Wiped
Those behind the Sonic Stadium’s podcast centric The Sonic Show are trying to pick up the pieces from a malicious attack and wipe of a principal YouTube account used to store much of the broadcast’s streaming material.
“This is a huge blow for The Sonic Show, as someone has basically deleted our history, our existence,” wrote Sonic Show admin Disco Ponies regarding the matter on its website. “If the account cannot be restored then episodes like our Summer of Sonic special will not be able to be reuploaded due to time limitation now placed on accounts after ours was created.”
Disco Ponies has submitted a complaint to YouTube, but as of the time of this article’s publication, no action has been taken.
