– LulzSec Is Back After Hacking The Front Page Of The Sun, Redirecting To Story About Rupert Murdoch’s Death (ZeroHedge, July 18, 2011):
It was only a few short weeks ago that we reported that the hacker group LulzSec which among others hacked the FBI, Sony, and who knows how many other security agencies, has decided to shut down. That didn’t last long. As of a few minutes ago, The Sun’s front page redirects to a makeshift website called New-Times.co.uk which carries a headline story titled “Media Moguls Body Discovered” which reports that “Rupert Murdoch, the controversial media mogul, has reportedly been found dead in his garden, police announce.” Readers can experience the hack for themselves by going to thesun.co.uk. Naturally, that this is like poking a stick in an already angry hornet’s nest goes without mention. As for the masses, we expect the distraction should be quite welcome.
