Adin Ross threatened by hackers

Diverging from the realm of in-real-life (IRL) streams, where unsolicited interruptions from the public can disrupt broadcasts, streaming solo from the comfort of one’s home should ideally proceed without complications. However, this isn’t always the case, as streamers may encounter errors and stumbling blocks along the way.

One of the primary challenges encountered by home-based streamers involves the potential targeting by both trolls and hackers. Trolls typically aim to disrupt the flow of the stream, while hackers have more malicious intentions, seeking to breach its security.

Various platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, and Kick offer a safeguard in the form of two-factor authentication (2FA), which serves to thwart hackers from gaining unauthorized access. Nevertheless, Destiny’s Kick channel recently experienced a breach when two hackers managed to gain control of his stream key and commandeered the broadcast.

In an unexpected turn of events on August 15, Destiny’s Kick channel unexpectedly featured two unfamiliar individuals who had successfully obtained his stream key and assumed control of the stream. In a departure from Destiny’s typical political content, the hackers chose to engage in playing flash games on Google while also issuing a threat to sell Kick’s “database” for a sum of $20. Following this, their attention shifted to a new target – Adin Ross.

Amid the chaos, one of the hackers off-camera proclaimed, “Next, we’re going to stream on Adin Ross,” while the other on-camera hacker encouraged viewers to make donations for unrelated reasons.

At present, Adin Ross’ channel remains unaffected by such an intrusion, and it remains uncertain whether the hackers possess any information that could potentially compromise other streamers on the Kick platform.
