Bill O'Reilly's Website Hacked By 4Chan Hackivist Group

Days after Fox News Fascist Scumbag Bill O’Reilly condemned the cracking of Sarah Palin’s Yahoo e-mail account, his own Web site fell victim to political hacktivism. Over the weekend, over 205 plain text passwords belonging to BillOreilly.com site members spread across the Internet.

Wikileaks, which describes its Web site as a “developing an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis,” is largely credited with the original posting of fairly innocuous information retrieved from Palin's e-mail account, including pictures of her daughter, her contact list, and e-mails including one purportedly from an appointee urging Palin not to worry about negative press.

In a Fox News clip circulating on YouTube, O’Reilly spoke out against the leak.

"Several hacktivists' blogs and forums claim that members of the “4chan” Internet community known for pranks against the site Ebaumsworld are credited with the O’Reilly hack. Allegedly, some of the perpetrators were spooked by the criminal implications when they discovered that members of the O’Reilly site used the same passwords for PayPal accounts.
