Hackers storm PBS web site, report Tupac alive

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: “Prominent rapper Tupac has been found alive and well in a small resort in New Zealand, locals report,” read a bogus PBS.com article posted by a group of hackers that also recently hit Fox News. The fake article went on to assert that The Notorious B.I.G. (a.k.a. Biggie Smalls) was also alive, and hiding, in the same small town.

“Lulz Security,” the group believed to be guilty of both the PBS and Fox crimes, is alleged to have stolen personal information about employees from both companies as well as other sensitive information—specifically, information about the upcoming singing competition, “The X Factor”, was compromised during the hack at Fox.

Per Gossip Cop, “After posting the fake Tupac story, the group taunted PBS in a series of tweets as the rumor began to spread.” It was not immediately clear what progress was being made in apprehending the crimes.

    You can’t just immigrate to New Zealand. There is an intensive applicatio¬n process. If you have ever been part of an organized crime group/asso¬ciated with members of an organized crime group. Tupac allegedly was either a Blood or hung out with gang members all the time. Either way, there’s no way NZ would have given him citizenshi¬p. Internet pranksters need to pick a believable country next time.
