Lulz Security Hacks Fox Broadcasting, Releases Personal Info
Fox Hacked: Lulz Security Leaks Passwords, Details from Fox Broadcasting Staff Accounts
A hacker group calling itself Lulz Security has hacked into a database containing the email addresses and passwords of around 300 Fox Broadcasting employees and affiliates. They also got info such as LinkedIn and Facebook logins.
If you work for or with Fox Broadcasting, change all your passwords immediately- it's not clear exactly how far the breach goes. Well, we know that Lulz Security got into the database containing personal info on 250,000 X-Factor USA hopefuls, and spread the list publicly via torrent-sharing sites.
Clearly Lulz Security was able to use the stolen info to access at least one Fox affiliate Twitter account:
Fox News 15 has decided to rape its own face. A sad day for our 25 viewers. @LulzSec
The group, which says it is unaffiliated with Anonymous, has been posting email/password lists on public-facing image-pasting sites, and has promised additional leaks each Monday. Lulz Security hinted at an attack on an FBI database, but it's not clear if the group is serious about that or not.
