Hackers Break Into Fox News Account, Tweet Fake Obama Assassination News

hacker_handsA hacker group calling themselves Scriptkiddies has broken into one of Fox News’ Twitter accounts and used it to disseminate fake news about the assassination of president Obama.

The group gained control of @foxnewspolitics, bragging about it on several Twitter accounts (now suspended).

They didn’t stop there, though; after tweeting a suspicious message on Fox News Politics account claiming the company has regained the control over that account, they started tweeting out messages about a shooting in which President Obama was fatally wounded.
