For now, no harm has been done by hackers to Scout's YouTube channel, and he has urged the video streaming giant to help in getting back his account. The pro had also asked his fans to retweet his Twitter post to get the matter noticed by officials at YouTube.

Meanwhile, Animesh Aggarwal, aka 8bitThug, also responded that they have already started the recovery process.

YouTube also quickly responded to Scout's tweet and sent him a direct message to solve the issue as soon as possible. Here's what the company's social media team replied on Twitter:

Furthermore, they have also asked him to share his email address to aid in their investigation into the matter.
