News that infamous hacking group LulzSec had come out of retirement to deface the web site of The Sun on Monday evening was eagerly reported by all and sundry, but a potentially much bigger story is about to break today, with the group set to release details on the large quantity of The Sun and News of the World emails it is sitting on.
LulzSec member AnonymouSabu revealed the user name and passwords of former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks in a Tweet late on Monday evening.
It appears that the password was 63000, the number of The Sun's 'Send My Story' tip line - not a very clever password to choose.
Even worse for Brooks, and News International, was his next Tweet, which read: "Sun/News of the world OWNED. We're sitting on their emails. Press release tomorrow."
Whether LulzSec is merely trying to stir up more trouble or actually has some incendiary evidence relating to the phone hacking affair remains to be seen.
However, with the Murdochs and potentially Brooks herself set to appear at a Commons culture, media and sport select committee on Tuesday afternoon, it should be an interesting day whatever happens.
