Murdoch's Sun newspaper hacked by LulzSec - Jul. 18, 2011

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The News Corp. phone-hacking scandal took another dramatic twist Monday when the publishing empire got a taste of its own medicine: Hackers seized control of the website of The Sun, the sister publication of the recently shuttered News of the World.

The website briefly displayed a fake news story announcing that News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch had been found dead. Soon after, the site began redirecting to the @LulzSec Twitter feed of Lulz Security, a hacker collective that has breached the websites of Sony, PBS and the U.S. Senate, among others. Late last month, the group said it was disbanding, but it seems to have been lured out of retirement for the operation it dubbed #MurdochMeltdownMonday.

The FBI is now also getting involved, considering a probe into the news organization amid allegations that Sept. 11 survivors, victims and their families had their voicemails hacked as well.
