Submission + - Hackers make spoof annnouncement of Jobs death (telegraph.co.uk)

iammani writes: Hackers have hijacked a web feed of the Macworld 2009 conference to make spoof announcements about the death of Steve Jobs. The micro-blogging feed at Macrumorslive.com was running smoothly through the first 23 minutes of the keynote speech given my Phil Schiller, senior vice president of marketing at Apple. Then a message saying: "Steve Jobs just died" was posted. Three minutes later, the feed clarified: "Retraction on Steve Jobs comment ... we don't know how that got in our feed. Steve did not die." That prompted another message saying: "Oh wait, sorry, Steve did die. Our condolences."
