Recently disbanded hacker group LulzSec is taking credit on Twitter this afternoon for a hack that redirected users attempting to access The Sun newspaper online to a page with a phony death notice for the paper's owner, Rupert Murdoch.

The URL for the death't be accessed directly right now (LulzSec's Twitter account blames the influx of traffic for crashing it), but a WHOIS inquiry confirms Gizmodo's report that the address is registered to News International.

The hack comes hours after the news that Sean Hoare, the so-called (by us) whistleblower in the News of the World photo-hacking story, was found dead in his home.
