Default What should we do?

A girl I know and lives in the same dorm came up to me a few moments ago and asked me if she could talk to me about something. I said sure, and we began talking.

It turns out that she posted on Youtube about her brother being in a talent show (didn't say where or how old he was). A viewer responded with something along the lines of "let me know how it goes...how old is he?"

At that moment, she got the weird gut reaction (that something's wrong). But she didn't want to appear rude, so she posted his age but then thought better of it and seconds later, posted a second thing, saying that wasn't his real age and why did the viewer want to know how old her brother was. the viewer didn't respond. She is really panicky, she fears that she's put her brother in grave danger but is too scared to go to her parents.

After she tells me what had happened, she asks me what should she do. I really have no idea what to tell her, any ideas?

(the reason I've posted this under anxiety was because she is worrying that she is going to have a panic attack.)

Well, she should remove the video at least.. Idk.. There are some bad people around, I'm afraid.. But if she hasn't written his name, or where he is or anything that helps.. I guess she'd feel better taking to her parents about it, though, just to feel safer.

i don't know if it's something to worry about, what would the person do if he/she knew the age? it's not like the person knows who he is and where he lives.
