One of the top mobile esports players from India, Harsh “Goblin” Paudwal, whose main YouTube channel (Goblin) got hacked earlier this week came forward with an update on the situation from his alternate account, Goblin Shorts.
He mentioned that his main channel is still hacked but he will soon be able to retrieve it, maybe in a week’s time. At the moment it has multiple random videos about various software and hacks for games like GTA V, Rainbow Six Siege, Valorant, and CS:GO.
However, a thing to note here is that all or most of Goblin’s original content on the channel remains unaffected, which is a bit of positive news to take away from this incident.
Goblin from Team SouL gives an update about his hacked YouTube channel: “It will be back in a week”
Ever since Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) was banned by the Government of India in July 2022, multiple professional players either turned towards a new mobile title like New State Mobile or became content creators awaiting the game’s return.
Goblin also turned towards livestreaming and content creation maintaining his contact with the audience while continuing his journey under the banner of Team SouL.
Unfortunately, earlier this week Goblin’s main YouTube channel with more than 382,000 subscribers and 356 videos was hacked. The culprit quickly uploaded multiple videos promoting cracked software like Microsoft Office, Adobe Lightroom, Autocad, and more along with advertising hacks for games like Valorant, Rainbow Six Siege, and CS:GO.
During a recent livestream from his alternate account, Goblin once again highlighted to his viewers that his main channel has been hacked and would be back within a week’s time.
“The channel will be retrieved but for now it is compromised. It will be back within a week, Thug (Animesh Agarwal) has said that it will take maximum of three to four days’ time, but consider it to take a whole week because you guys know they also stay busy and might forget,” said Goblin.
He added that the reason behind his account getting hacked will lead to it taking some time for it to be retrieved. Already three days have passed and another three to four days are required before he gets back control over it.
