scammers on youtube channels like ser saftey

Has anybody noticed that there have been scammers on youtube saying that they like the videos and they want to be friends. I just want people to be aware of that

It appears to be a YouTube-wide security breach, and it’s not just on Grant’s channel (mine has been hit with these spambots too).

The consensus from other bigger YouTube news channels that have covered this issue is do not interact with them. If they ask to be friends, even replying to them with “no, buzz off” has been rumored to be enough for these spambots to somehow exploit YouTube and gain access to your account. It’s best to just delete their comments if they appear on your video, and not interact with them on other people’s videos.
