MTV’s official YouTube channel is currently offline due to a massive cyberattack.
According to reports, the YouTube channel was shut down on Thursday, March 18th at around 12:15pm BST, as the malicious malware was installed on its server.
The channel was expected to be back online shortly afterwards, but was not.
We reached out to MTV for comment, but were told the channel was not “fully operational”.
We’ve reached out again to MTV to see if we can confirm whether this is the case, and if there is a timetable for its return.
It’s not clear if the channel will be restored at the earliest.
If it is, we’ll update this article accordingly.
This article has been updated to include MTV’s response to our inquiry.
