LulzSec Hacks The Sun, Posts Fake Rupert Murdoch Death Report
Hacking the Phone Hackers: LulzSec Targets News International
LulzSec is not dead. The hacker group has targeted The Sun, redirecting the UK tabloid's visitors to a fake Rupert Murdoch death report, crashing the site hosting the fake story. LulzSec then pointed The Sun to the Lulz Security Twitter page as the battle between hackers and admins continues. Rupert Murdoch is not dead, but The Sun was definitely hacked.
Within the last few moments, LulzSec began tweeting out mobile phone numbers associated with The Sun.
LulzSec also says it has hacked deeper into News International than just The Sun, and has begun posting mobile phone numbers.
WE HAVE JOY WE HAVE FUN, WE HAVE MESSED UP MURDOCH'S SUN
The Sun, along with The Sunday Times and the recently closed News of the World (NOTW), is implicated in the phone-hacking and bribery scandal that is bringing Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks to Parliament on July 19.
While LulzSec is all about teh lulz and not really political, it's worth pointing out that hacking The Sun's servers could potentially give News International an excuse if any mailserver logs are missing or altered. You really don't want to screw with that sort of thing when a forensic IT investigation is looming.
