Looks like The Sun has been hacked. The News Corp-owned UK newspaper’s website is currently redirecting to another domain (http://www.new-times.co.uk/sun/) which lands on a big, screaming headline: ”Media moguls body discovered.” At the bottom: “Lulz.” 
The (untrue!) story goes:

Rupert Murdoch, the controversial media mogul, has reportedly been found dead in his garden, police announce.
Murdoch, aged 80, has said to have ingested a large quantity of palladium before stumbling into his famous topiary garden late last night, passing out in the early hours of the morning.
“We found the chemicals sitting beside a kitchen table, recently cooked,” one officer states. “From what we can gather, Murdoch melted and consumed large quantities of it before exiting into his garden.”

No word yet from The Sun, whose twitter account most recently tweeted, “Oh shizzle,” before pointing towards a story about Snoop Dogg. But Lulz Security, the group that’s famously hacked PBS, Sony, and the CIA over the past few months appears to be taking credit. Just 20 minutes ago they tweeted, “The Sun’s homepage now redirects to the Murdoch death story on the recently-owned New Times website. Can you spell success, gentlemen?” And you thought they’d disbanded.
