A person or a group going by the name of TheScriptKiddies managed to hack @foxnewspolitics on Twitter and used it to announce fake death of President Barack Obama.
Here are the latest @foxnewspolitics tweets:
FoxNews.com gave the following statement about the hack:
FoxNews.com’s Twitter feed for political news, FoxNewspolitics, was hacked early Monday morning.
Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets claiming that President Obama had been assassinated. Those reports are incorrect, of course, and the president is spending the July 4 holiday with his family.
The hacking is being investigated, and FoxNews.com regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.
