Despite Lulzsec’s last claim of calling it quits, the hacking group has struck once again, this time invading The Times, News Corp., and The Sun.
The group gained access to The Times and News Corp. servers and redirected The Sun’s homepage to their Twitter account. They even posted a faux rendition of The Sun.
The bogus article said that Rupert Murdoch, the powerful CEO of News Corporation, was found dead in his garden. Murdoch was involved in a recent phone hacking scandal and was also caught bribing English police officers. Murdoch is in the spotlight of media business at the moment and remains under investigation.
After their operation was complete, the Lulz Boat tweeted, “The Sun’s homepage now redirects to the Murdoch death story on the recently-owned New Times website. Can you spell success, gentlemen?”
Lulzsec continues to tweet about their operations and now are showing no signs of stopping. Just yesterday they tweeted, “Oh, we forgot to mention that we sailed over to News International and wrecked them too. Nearing 300,000 followers… full steam ahead!”
The group seems to becoming more and more twisted as they go on, with odd tweets and more sinister attacks.
The Lulz Boat is clearly embarking on another journey, and there’s no way to tell where they will voyage next.
