Tupac alive and chilling in New Zealand, according to PBS

The PBS website was hacked in retaliation for a recent PBS "Frontline" special about the organization WikiLeaks

(CBS / What's Trending) - it may be a few months past April Fools' Day, but that didn't stop a bunch of merry online pranksters from hacking the PBS Newshour Rundown site and announcing that Tupac was found alive in New Zealand.

The Lulz Boat attacked the site apparently in retaliation for a PBS documentary on Wikileaks. They also posted passwords and e-mail addresses on the public bulletin board of users on the PBS site. Lulz Boat posted this statement: Greetings Internets. We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed. We decided to sail our Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further... perusing. As you should know by now, not even that fancy-ass fortress from the third shitty Pirates of the Caribbean movie (first one was better!) can withhold our barrage of chaos and lulz. Anyway, unnecessary sequels aside... wait, actually: second and third Matrix movies sucked too! Anyway, say hello to the insides of the PBS servers, folks. They best watch where they're sailing next time. Silly hackers. Everyone knows Tupac is hiding out in Cuba, not New Zealand.
