A group of hackers, who managed to infiltrate American TV network PBS’s website last night, have published a story claiming to have proof that popular beat combo artists Tupac and Biggie Smalls living in secrecy in New Zealand.
If you visited the PBS site last night you would be told that Tupac and Biggie were not gunned down in separate incidents in the mid nineties, but have in fact been spending their time in an unnamed New Zealand town.
Quite why the two rappers, sworn enemies in their later careers, decided to relocate in the same small town on the other side of the world was not made clear, but hacking outfit LulzSec concocted a semi-convincing story about the surprise discovery.
Only after Lulzsec had managed to draw attention to the revelatory news story did PBS become aware of the attack fixed the site. History now records that Tupac and Biggie had not in fact started a new life down under again.
The reason behind the attack on PBS is that the television network had just broadcast a documentary about WikiLeaks called WikiSecrets that drew the ire of a “less than impressed” LulzSec the group wrote in a statement.
This prompted the decision to “sail” their “Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further… perusing”.
The group, riled by the negative portrayal of Bradley Manning and Wikileaks, also posted passwords and usernames for account of PBS.org admin and users, along with login info for PBS TV stations.
LulzSec, who describe themselves as a”team of lulzy individuals who feel the drabness of the cyber community is a burden on fun”, have also targeted Fox Network in the past too, as well as hitting the X Factor.
