Link Validator & YouTube

Our team is verifying links in a large number of Canvas master sections, and as I have been running the link validator I am finding the same issue in various courses: courses that had a handful of "false positives" previously are now showing 20-40+ broken links or issues. In a vast majority of these circumstances the links are embedded YouTube videos or external links to YouTube. Has there been an update recently to the link validator that may have caused its "alerts" to be different? I have not been able to find anything about the link validator in the Release notes that would suggest this significant of a change.
