On April 27 Ethan Nunn a Youtuber that goes with the handle of ENunn, tweeted about Cartoon Network co.uk site being hacked.

The Twitter thread shows additional examples of other Cartoon Network domains being compromised.

ATTENTION! This video may be NSFW!

The company in UK acknowledged the issue and released this information.

Two hackers, sudorealistic and danilao are possibly behind the hack.
Edit 02.05: it appears that sudoreall has deleted his profile.

Although it looks like the site was taken down by CN IT department to solve the issue.

Edit 05.02: all tweets have been deleted, so here is the original tweet:

Sudorealistic claims that the hack was intended to show how vulnerable CN is, yet from the timeline there is no indication that the hackers tried to contact the company to fix the vulnerability before the attack.

According to this google doc, it looks like Sudorealistic has a history in downloading, streaming or consuming CN content.
There is also a hint that the Turner Media admin panel may have been used to perform the hack.

I tried to reach out to the Hacker for more clarification, but the request remained answered.

If you see any errors, want to send an update to feel free to contact me via twitter or key base.
