Google Video Cache Bypasses YouTube Age Verification

Echo: http://lists.grok.org.uk/pipermail/full-disclosure/2007-July/064625.html

Youtube.com requires account creation and login before allowing visitors to view videos flagged by users as inappropriate.

Sample flagged video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[video_id]
"This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community.
To view this video or group, please verify you are 18 or older by logging in or signing up."

.....alternatively, download the video directly from Google video

I've said it before, cache is the bigggest threat to censorware.
