LulzSec Is Back and Hacks The Sun Newspaper

Looks like hacker group LulzSec’s  declaration of retirement few weeks ago is a fake one as now it is coming back in action. The homepage of the The Sun were redirected to make a fake story about Murdoch’s death from a drug overdose on London Times. The group has redirected the Sun’s homepage to the @LuzSec Twitter account after the amount of requests caused a 404 failure on the Times site.

The fake story was posted for 10 minutes before it was pulled out from the UK  Times site.

LulzSec claimed its responsibility for the attack on Twitter. Their post of Twitter says, ” We have owned Sun/News of the World-that story is simply phase 1-expect the lulz to flow in coming days,” ,” The Sun’s homepage now redirects to the Murdoch death story on the recently-owned New Times website. Can you spell success, gentlemen?” and “ now redirects to our Twitter feed. Hello, everyone that wanted to visit The Sun! How is your day? Good? Good?”

In addition, the group tweeted emails and passwords of Sun employees from the recently-arrested News International chief Rebekah Brooks’s account.

For a clearer view of the fake story posted on the UK  Times site, refer to the passage below:

Media moguls body discovered

 Rupert Murdoch, the controversial media mogul, has reportedly been found dead in his garden, police announce.

Murdoch, aged 80, has said to have ingested a large quantity of palladium before stumbling into his famous topiary garden late last night, passing out in the early hours of the morning.

“We found the chemicals sitting beside a kitchen table, recently cooked,” one officer states. “From what we can gather, Murdoch melted and consumed large quantities of it before exiting into his garden.”

Authorities would not comment on whether this was a planned suicide, though the general consensus among locals and unnamed sources is that this is the case.

One detective elaborates. “Officers on the scene report a broken glass, a box of vintage wine, and what seems to be a family album strewn across the floor, containing images from days gone by; some containing handpainted portraits of Murdoch in his early days, donning a top hat and monocle.”

Another officer reveals that Murdoch was found slumped over a particularly large garden hedge fashioned into a galloping horse. “His favourite”, a butler, Davidson, reports.

Butler Davidson has since been taken into custody for additional questioning.
