Database for Fox Employees Hacked, then Leaked

Last night an Internet hacking group called Lulz Security hacked a database containing Fox Broadcasting employees’ passwords and emails, then leaked them online via its Twitter account. Lulz also took over a Fox affiliate’s Twitter, and began tweeting items like the one pictured here.

According to Gawker, this is only the beginning for Lulz:

Lulz Security appears to have hacked and stolen a lot of information from Fox.com, and they’re releasing it slowly for maximum effect… They’re going to keep leaking every Monday, they say. And considering how these sorts of breaches often snowball as hackers jump from one database to the next, there could be some interesting stuff coming out.

If you work for Fox, it might be time to change your password from “1234567″ to something a little more complicated.
