Tech Tuesday – The Sun Hackers Are Now Getting Hacked

It happens from time to time. One hacker group hacks another. It’s like a virtual drive by shooting. But this time, it’s a little different. Rupert Murdoch’s News International has been hacked by the hacking group LulzSec, who have hacked the CIA and the FBI to name a few.

They claim to have hacked into a now no longer used email server for the recently shutdown News of the World, posting email addresses and names and phone numbers of former staff of the tabloid. As well as posting a bogus story about Rupert Murdoch having committed suicide on The Sun website. The attack then spread to the other sites, The Sunday Times and The Times. All of which went down recently.As for who took them down, no one is sure if it was News International or LulzSec. I’m leaning twoards LulzSec as a message on their Twitter feed states “News International’s DNS servers and all 1,024 web addresses are down”.

While I am no big fan of LulzSec, in my opinion, News International had it coming to them. After what they did in the U.K. and now they are under investigation here in the U.S. for possibly hacking 9/11 victims families phones, karma pretty much bitch slapped them. I hope the F.B.I. gets to the bottom of it soon and justice for those people are served.

As for LulzSec, like I said above, I’m not a big fan, I don’t approve of what they have done, but it makes for a good story and makes me feel like there is some justice out there.
