Skip to comments.Wikileaks posts Bill O'Reilly Web site data
Posted on 09/19/2008 8:18:09 PM PDT by markedmannerf
Just days after publishing U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's personal email messages, the Wikileaks Web site has published data about members who signed up for a section of Fox Television host Bill O'Reilly's Web site.
Hackers were able to obtain a list of Billoreilly.com premium members, including email addresses, site passwords and the city and state where they live. Some of the information was published Friday on Wikileaks.com, which has been under fire from conservative commentators, including O'Reilly, for publishing Palin's messages.
"Wikileaks has been informed the hack was a response to the pundit's recent scurrilous attacks over the Sarah Palin's email story -- including on Wikileaks and other members of the press," Wikileaks said on its site. "Hacktivists, thumbing their noses at the pundit, took control of O'Reilly's main site, Billoreilly.com."

Privacy only matters for terrorists and their supporters. Good work, nerds.
Did the site leak data on loofas?
Direct link. If you're a premium member of Billy's site, change your password asap - at the very least.
I hope this episode doesn’t turn O’Reilly into a sanctimonious blowhard.
Seems the campaign is getting into the cyberwar front during the last week.
“I hope this episode doesnt turn OReilly into a sanctimonious blowhard.”
Bwahaha...you are kidding..right...lol lol..
BOR passed that stage in 2002...
Seriously though, he will go on a crusade now.
Bill’s password is “loofacostssixmillion”
Has Obama spoken out against this. After telling people to “get in other people’s faces” I think the hackers may have thought they have a green light to do whatever they want to do.
Hey, maybe they do.
At some point conservatives need to start regarding this behavior as AN ACT OF WAR.
These creatures aren’t going to be happy until there is fighting in the streets. It’s coming.
And this proves...what exactly? You hack into someone's website, it doesn't make you cool or big or in the right.

Another good reason to change your password often on your favorite sites.
Will FR be next?
I hope that he doesn’t attack freerepublic for this.
The problem is they won't be in the streets fighting. They'll sit in their jammies while doing things (like race-baiting) to encourage everyone else to fight. They will be safe and cozy in mom's basement using the internet to spread their hate. I know several like this who are posting hateful things and advocating civil unrest and a new civil war, when in reality they are little sissies who would wet themselves if confronted.
Bill is gonna go nuts! This is gonna be fun to watch!
I hope he rips them a new one. He will be very protective of his viewers.
I smell a lawsuit.
doesnt turn OReilly into a sanctimonious blowhard.
That could never happen!
As for this news about Bob's site being hacked -- it had better get a lot of TV time. It's not fair to his site's users and clients to not know they've been hacked. It's not good enough to simply tell them their account info has been compromised either. Today I saw screenshots of 100s of peoples' personal info in the hands of people who would love to hack into their accounts on other sites using the same login passwords. Shame on Bill O Reilly and Fox News for having such a weak site security system, they are just as much to blame as the hackers on this one. Their customers should be furious.
Both of them? Wow!
It is sick that people do this crap.
Hammer them hard.
Spare nothing in getting the empty suit elected.
not there yet....key word ‘yet’
I wonder if O'Reilly is going to continue his salacious lust for Obama after this.
It is Obama's thugs that are doing this stuff, and it is disgusting.
We are nearing a moment of truth as the battle of Americans versus democrats is really heating up.
No but you're now the No Falafel Zone.
