planetFear YouTube Account Hacked

Report by Dave MacFarlane
Tuesday 17th January 2012

I would like to announce to all our readers and customers that within the last 24 hours - at time of going to press - the planetFear Youtube account has been compromised and subsequently shut down. This action has happened against our will and without our knowledge.

Although we do still retain copies of most of the videos posted on the YouTube channel, at present due to the action taken by someone who has gained access to our account, any links and embeds used to view the videos elsewhere on the web have been lost.

We are attempting to recover the account through the appropriate channels however the most likely outcome of this is that all information held on the YouTube channel has been deleted, including links, comments, viewing statistics and subscribers.

In the coming weeks we will attempt to restore the information previously held there but due to the volume of videos uploaded we are anticipating this taking some considerable time.

I would like to apologise to all our planetFear readers for this inconvenience, we are aware that this is a huge set back for us but we will work hard to rectify the issue.


If you have any queries in the meantime please feel free to email me directly on:

I will endeavour to reply to emails as soon as is possible.


Thanks in advance for your understanding.
