Hackers steal Fox TV passwords

It’s about a group called Lulz Security. They gained access to a server belonging to the Fox Broadcasting network, and published details of hundreds of employees usernames and passwords on the net.

A simple message was also send to them:

Dear Fox.com,

We don't like you very much. As such, we cordially invite you to kiss our hand-crafted crescent fresh asses.

Remember that time we leaked all your X-Factor contestants? [LINK]

Well now we're leaking some more of your junk. We invite the Internet to ravage the following list of emails and passwords (from a database within Fox.com) - Facebook, MySpace, PayPal, whatever you can get your hands on. Take from them everything. Remember to proxy up, or tunnel like a pro!

In addition, Lulz Security gained access to the Twitter accounts of some Fox affiliates. And much more on: http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2011/05/13/hackers-steal-fox-tv-passwords-deface-twitter-and-linkedin-pages/
