LulzSec will release Murdoch email archive

LulzSec will release Murdoch email archive

LulzSec behind a hack on The Sun's website claim to have extracted an email archive which they plan to release later on Tuesday. The Sun's website were redirected towards a fake story on the supposed death of Rupert Murdoch by infamous hacktivist collective LulzSec. The group also redirected visitors to the main News International website to the LulzSec Twitter account.

Sabu leader of LulzSec said via Twitter that the group was sitting on emails of News International staffers that it planned to release. Sabu released email login details for former News International chief exec Rebekah Brooks, a central figure in the News of the World voicemail-hacking scandal.

The hackers also posted the mobile phone numbers of three News International execs. This information seems to have come from an old database.
