Tupac Shakur is officially a part of internet history!
In what might be considered the greatest hoax since that “Suge Knight Arrested for Killing Tupic” video, online hackers successfully hit up the PBS newshour website and posted a fake story about the deceased rap icon.
LulzSec, a notorious group of hackers who attack for “fun and infamy” rather than for financial or activist reasons, accessed PBS’s database, where they secured login credentials and posted an article claiming that rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls were found alive and well in New Zealand.
LulzSec’s hip-hop hoax had social networks buzzing for hours!
The article has since been removed but here it is it it’s entirety…
PBS acknowledged the hack early this morning, and tweeted several responses to comments about the fake story.
The Lulz Boat also posted what it said were passwords of journalists, login information for the PBS series “Frontline” and sensitive information about PBS stations.
