The online hacking groups claims they’ve broken into the servers of News International.
Online protest group "Anonymous" said Monday night it had obtained a large cache of emails from the servers of News International, the News Corp. subsidiary which oversees global media baron Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers.
Along with the emails, Anonymous said it had unearthed the email logins and passwords for News International executives, including former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks, who was arrested recently in connection to the paper's phone hacking schemes.
A Twitter account connected with the hackers said they planned to release the emails online tomorrow. Also unearthed were phone numbers for News International officials, along with personal information about an online content editor.
News International, which hosts The Sun, responded by taking their mail servers offline. Hackers also took down the News International website, forcing it to redirect to a Twitter account for the hacking group LulzSec.
