Why is YouTube so bad at video security?
By now you’ve probably seen how YouTube is notorious for not taking down videos that are inappropriate, or threatening.
And now, a new study has found that even though YouTube has long been a popular destination for content creators and their audiences, the video platform is still failing to protect users from threats.
Researchers from the University of California, Santa Barbara, used publicly available information to examine YouTube’s data security practices for 2016 and 2017.
What they found was that YouTube’s video security system isn’t working as well as it should, even as the platform continues to grow and evolve.
YouTube was once a place where creators could upload videos without fear of being blacklisted by the company, but those days are long gone, according to a report published by security researchers at Symantec.
YouTube is now notorious for failing to take down videos with offensive language and content that is offensive to Muslims and others.
In the past year, YouTube has seen a number of videos showing anti-Muslim sentiment and videos with graphic content.
The researchers said that YouTube is also failing to ensure that videos don’t contain nudity and violence.
The findings suggest that YouTube has a much broader problem with its security practices than has previously been publicly revealed.
The study found that the security system YouTube relies on to protect videos is not strong enough to prevent some types of malicious behavior.
For example, in one study, researchers found that YouTube only allowed users to upload videos that were in compliance with a set of guidelines.
YouTube’s security team also relies on automated systems to detect when content is too offensive or violent to watch, but the team said that the automated systems are too slow to identify suspicious videos.
It’s unclear whether YouTube’s systems are being adjusted to account for the new threat models or whether YouTube is simply not taking the time to make sure that its content is safe.
YouTube has made it clear that its security team will continue to work with law enforcement, but Symantech has said that they believe the platform is being too lenient with YouTube.
“We think YouTube is doing its best to comply with the law, but it seems like it is not,” Symantek said.
