Giblets: This guy could have deleted every video on Youtube ever

Its not often that mind-bending exploits are found on the internet, but man, this one could have killed it on April Fool’s Day this year. The footage you see above is a How-To video posted by one Kamil Hismatullin, a junior programmer enrolled in Youtube’s $1337 Vulnerability Grant Research program, which pays people to discover security flaws in Youtube’s software. For his efforts in discovering the above bug, which would remove literally any video on Youtube, Hismatullin was paid $5000 by Google. Though proud of his work, Hismatullin writes on his blog that the urge to delete Justin Bieber off Youtube entirely was tempting.
