LulzSec Is Back After Hacking The Front Page Of The Sun, Redirecting To Story About Rupert Murdoch's Death

Tyler Durden's picture




 

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.

Page was redirected here: http://www.new-times.co.uk/sun/

Looks like CSS sploit to me. The bottom of the page was pretty funny.

Too bad it's a hoax (even better if O'Reily and Hannity were along for the 'ride')...

Actually, it's the prime whistleblower in the Murdoch Infamy who has been found dead. Brit police say "accidental". So it goes, in the land of ZOG.

lol... any bets on when Rupert's cellphone number is psoted to Twitter?

 

Srsly though... part of this is that @lulzSec (and the #AntiSec folks more generally) are pissed off that the cell-phone hijinks are being called 'hacking' as if there's any technical expertise involved.

 

What actually happened was that people on Murdoch's payroll got hold of cellphone numbers of some group of targets, and then checked their voicemail using a 'remote voicemail' mechanism... hoping that the numpties had not changed their password from the default ('0000' or '1234' depending on the provider).

Calling that 'hacking' is a bit like calling a burglary 'espionage'.

 

Also - Mudoch's empire is built on sand, and but for one bank in the mid-80s, News Corp would have gone the same way as 'Townsend, Greenspan' (Mr Magoo's failed economics consultancy - the failure of which resulted in Greenspan resigning himself to a sinecure on the public tit).

And isn't it FUN to watch politicians - who would suck Murdoch's cock if he so much as hinted that he liked blowjobs - turn on him? If you're a student of the history of failing Empires, you ought to be able to make connections to compile the "Who's Who" of who will line up to kick the US in the balls as it slides...

Serious bankster infighting going on. Nobody here speculates on anything. Paul Watson at infowars says lulzsec tried hacking them.

Well I don't know why they would attack infowars. Makes no sense. At least they are reporting what is going on.

Anyone notice how UUP was previously channelling, and now it is being drawn into a wedge?  Up or down when it gets cornered?  When?
