Hacking group LulzSec has said that it is preparing a major dump of email correspondence from News International.
The group claims to have gained access to systems at the beleaguered publisher, and is preparing to disclose the information.
A Monday Twitter posting from 'Sabu', a member of Anonymous, which is affiliated to LulzSec, said that News International had been 'owned' and that the group will release an email archive on Tuesday. As of Wednesday evening US, the documents had yet to be released.
News International has been at the centre of a major phone and malware hacking scandal which has resulted in several top-level departures and arrests, and the unwanted attentions of LulzSec.
Earlier this week the group hacked the The Sun web site and posted a phoney story about News International president Rupert Murdoch having committed suicide.
Meanwhile, authorities in the US, UK and the Netherlands launched a series of raids targeting alleged Anonymous members. Among the individuals said to have been arrested in the raids was LulzSec member 'tflow'.
