Thousands of Printers Hacked, Owners Told to Subscribe to PewDiePie

Twitter user @TheHackerGiraffe had reportedly hacked around 50,000 printers last November 29 to print out messages telling people to subscribe to PewDiePie’s YouTube channel.

It was reported that printers that were connected to the Internet, using old firmware, and had “printing” ports left exposed online were hacked.

PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, has been the most popular YouTuber with 72.6 million subscribers. However, Indian record label T-Series recently caught up with the Swedish YouTuber and the two are currently in a tight race.
