Tupac Lives According to (Hacker-Controlled) PBS

Hacker group The Lulz Boat pirated PBS.org and posted an article claiming Tupac Shakur--who was shot four times and died in September, 1996--is alive and well and living in New Zealand.  They also claim rapper Biggie Smalls (Notorious B.I.G.) was housed in the same resort for a time after his death.

LulzBoat created a new page within PBS.org and posted the passwords of PBS journalists, login information and "sensitive information" about PBS stations.

According to CNN:
The Lulz Boat claims it was "less than impressed" after watching the network's program "WikiSecrets" and "decided to sail our Lulz Boat over the PBS servers for further... perusing."

The "WikiSecrets" documentary, which aired last week on the PBS show "Frontline," talked to U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning's father and close friends.

Manning, a military intelligence analyst, is suspected of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents that ended up on the WikiLeaks website -- one of the largest leaks of classified material in U.S. history.

Whether PBS has gotten their security issues under control is debatable, but the article and any LulzBoat references have been removed from the site.
