Rupert Murdoch’s Tabloid Hacked To Report His Death

The woes keep piling on for Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, as the homepage of its popular Sun paper was altered to feature an amusing fake report on the mogul’s committing suicide “in his topiary garden”. The Guardian notes:

News International websites for the Times and the Sun were taken down last night after hackers targeted the Sun‘s web pages and redirected traffic to another page falsely reporting that Rupert Murdoch had been found dead. The breach was apparently the first hack of a major UK newspaper’s website.

The LulzSec hacking collective hacked the tabloid’s site, and also claimed to be “sitting on their [the Sun‘s] emails” and that they would release the emails on Tuesday.

    Good, if only it were a true story. I don’t want the Murdocks to go to trial, I want to see them executed at halftime during the Super Bowl. We live in a world where a common hacker has his door broken down and is shot dead or put in prison without trial and at the same time scumbag corporate hackers are apologized to on national Television. The Murdocks were actually apologized to for the Pie incident in that phoney hearing today, which was total BS and a mockery of the justice system.
