Google has patched a flaw in its YouTube service that could allow hackers to take over the site and redirect users to malicious links.

The bug, first reported in October, affects the video site itself and a handful of other websites.

It’s not clear how widespread the problem is, or how it could be exploited.

However, the company has patched the vulnerability in a patch that is expected to roll out to users on January 3.

Google has not released details about the vulnerability.

The company said in a statement that it “remains committed to addressing this vulnerability as quickly as possible.”
