Murdoch’ News International warns readers over cyber attack by LulzSec

Rupert Murdoch’ News International is warning readers that their personal details may have been stolen during a recent cyber attack.

The paper says addresses, birthdates and phone numbers of people who participated in online competitions may have been compromised during the July 19 attack on The Sun.

No financial or password information was obtained.

Hacktivist group Lulz Security claimed responsibility for the attack, which redirected readers to a fake story about Murdoch. Police have already arrested several alleged LulzSec members.

The group also claims attacks on Sony Corporation, the CIA and Britain’s Serious Organized Crime Agency.
