Sun newspaper hacked by Lulzsec

It appears that Lulzsec, the famous hacking group, have not disbanded. They have apparently hacked The Sun Newspaper, owned by media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.

The hack included the publishing of a fake story which said that Rupert Murdoch was found dead in his garden. Visitors to the website were then redirected to Lulzsecs Twitter Account, which at the time said “WE HAVE JOY WE HAVE FUN, WE HAVE MESSED UP MURDOCH’S SUN”

The last post on Lulzsec’s Twitter page says “For all you new people that are watching us right now: this is what we do, this is how we do it. High-quality entertainment just for you”
