YouTube has a lot of cleaning up to do. According to PC World, the world's most popular video sharing site is bound to suddenly get much more popular, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.
According to the report, porn videos have been uploaded in a raid on YouTube servers by a Japanese web forum group known as 4chan. Some 4chan members are claiming that the attack is in response to YouTube management deleting certain kinds of music off the video sharing site.
Music videos and rare MP3s, much of it bound by copyright and un-licensed by the site, have become one of the most popular features of YouTube.
But porn on YouTube? YouTube have always maintained that the video site is expressively free from pornography, one of the few places on the internet that actually is. However, that hasn't stopped a flood of x-rated videos from popping up on YouTube and nor has it made the job of removing the offending videos any easier.
If you factor in the recent news that around 20 hours of video are uploaded every minute, that makes for one big cleanup.
