The Fever Dream that was EBAUMS WORLD
eBaums World is an entertainment website that was created in 2001. It showcases funny cartoons, memes, videos, and fun games. Aside from being a great place for funny videos, eBaum’s is also known for hosting a Lindsay Lohan montage and a denial-of-service attack. However, despite its reputation for hosting fun and entertaining content, it has recently been the victim of various hacking attempts.
eBaum’s World is an entertainment website
eBaums World is owned by Literally Media. Founded in 2001, it is an entertainment website that features primarily user-submitted comedy content. Members of the site can exchange content for points, which are then exchanged for monetary rewards. eBaum’s members can earn points and redeem them for real money. Among the ways to earn points is by watching videos and commenting on them.
eBaum’s World has gained worldwide popularity through its hilarious content and community. It features trending memes and strange news that have gained popularity. The community is fiercely dedicated to the site and enjoys the content that’s on offer. eBaum’s World also provides an opportunity for online advertisers to connect with millennial adults through its brand. Aside from the content and ads on the site, eBaum’s also offers a variety of other services.
It showcases funny videos, cartoons, pictures, memes, and fun games
The internet is filled with weird and wonderful things, and eBaum’s World is no exception. The site was one of the first of its kind, featuring videos of people doing weird things, including treadmill dancing and a dog with skateboard skills. Some of the videos are controversial, aimed at bringing awareness to certain topics like Lindsay Lohan or the PB&J sandwich.
The success of eBaum has paved the way for a television pilot and a book deal, and the site has even received death threats and vandalism. But despite the success, the internet has its fair share of sophomoric content, as Bauman is a master carny of the web. Each week, his content manager sifts through thousands of online videos to find the “creme de la creme” of DIY lunacy. The site’s ad revenue has more than doubled to $10 million annually and he employs 30 people to manage the site’s various tasks.
It hosts a Lindsay Lohan montage
Activists on eBaum’s World despise the site and eBaum’s host, Eric Bauman, for allowing a Lindsay Lohan montage on his site. The site is the first port of call for millions of people, and Bauman probably could have tolerated some jibes and accusations of theft. However, this Lindsay Lohan montage has turned the animosity into vandalism.
The YTMND movement began in 2001, and within a few days, eBaum’s hosted a Lindsay Lohan montage without the video’s creator crediting it. The site was attacked by YTMND users, who joined other internet communities and began committing spam posting and DoS attacks against eBaum’s World.
It hosts a denial-of-service attack
eBaum’s World has been the target of a denial-of-service attack. A group known as YTMND is suspected of hijacking the site and attacking its users, causing a deluge of traffic. The attackers allegedly used botnets to send e-mails threatening the creator of YTMND. They have also been accused of hosting cyber-terrorism. YTMND founder Max Goldberg is a vocal critic of eBaums World, which has been the target of several denial-of-service attacks.
Although federal law permits the hosting of user-uploaded content, eBaums World took advantage of this safe harbor when the Stern crisis broke. Although the law required the site to remove content after it was removed, it hardly applied to its website. The site sold advertisements as it hosted content, and was only exposed after people made a big fuss about its content. Despite this, eBaums World’s site has recovered from the attack.
