Hackers have broken into a Fox.com extranet site, designed as a repository of research statistics, programming details and ratings for clients and affiliates, and stolen the emails and passwords for hundreds of Fox Broadcasting employees.
The group, which calls itself Lulz Security, then used that information to alter the LinkedIn accounts of more than a dozen Fox sales employees, tweeting each one on its @LulzSec twitter account. It also posted the trove online, saying, 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!
The security breach apparently took place more than a week ago, as Fox Broadcasting alerted its users on April 29th that it had been hacked and urged them to change their passwords.

Found this on Pastebin:
I see some jail time for Lulz. Something tells me FOX isn’t going to sit around and allow this idiot to pave the way for further breaches.
I would advocate the death penalty in this case.
High-tech, political terrorism.
I am sure the Holderian government justice entities will spring into action right away to fight this crime ...
This will not be procecuted let alone be investigated.
This just in. The hackers were found to be operating from Holder's conference room. sarc/ As such they will be given the Medal of Freedom by Obama personally.
I would fry ‘em in ANY hacking case.
Execute hackers once or twice and the crap would stop.
This needs to be made a major felony.
I’ll bet Politico was real happy.
Why keep it going? You want to help the hackers achieve their purpose?
I loathe and hate the American Left. Anything bad that happens to them they have earned ten times over.
Someone working for the WH??
No, Pops. I just found this link on a search. Hackers regularly use Pastebin to post on and brag about their ‘conquests’. If it helps people finding out who the hackers are.....then all the better. They leave a ‘trail’.
Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I would love to see ‘The Jester’ go after these guys.
