(Newser) – So it turns out that the News of the World isn't the only gig in town that can hack: Notorious prankster-hackers LulzSec and Anonymous are wreaking havoc with Rupert Murdoch and his empire, reports Gizmodo. Lulzsec fired the first volley, publishing a cheeky account of Murdoch's death—via palladium—on a webpage masquerading as Murdoch's Sun. The post has since been taken down, but you can see a screenshot in the gallery.

Not content to simply poke at Murdoch, LulzSec and Anonymous took the fight to Murdoch's newly-unemployed-and-arrested exec, Rebekah Brooks, tweeting her email login and password, notes Sam Biddle on Gizmodo. Other executives' information, including their phone numbers, followed, and it appears that the hackers are busily ferreting out more information. "We are battling with The Sun admins right now - I think they are losing," tweeted LulzSec.
