Vevo, the joint venture between Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Abu Dhabi Media, Warner Music Group, and Alphabet Inc. (Google’s parent company), was just hacked. Roughly 3.12TB worth of internal files have been posted online. The Leak came after employee told hackers to “Fuck Off!”

Hacking group OurMine early Friday posted more than 3 Terabytes of internal files accessed during a breach of Vevo, a music video platform majority-controlled by Universal Music and Sony Music.

By midmorning, most of the files had been removed from OurMine’s site “because of a request from Vevo,” the site said. Still available to peruse were some promotional files about artists Katy Perry, The Weeknd and Demi Lovato.

In August, OurMine took over HBO’s social media accounts and posted: “Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security – ourmine .org -> Contact”.

The group also ‘hacked’ Wikileaks at the start of September where it changed the website’s homepage. It wrote: “Hi, it’s OurMine,” the message read. “Don’t worry we are just testing your… blablablab [sic], Oh wait, this is not a security test! Wikileaks, remember when you challenged us to hack you?”
