UK Murdoch paper warns website users data stolen


Britain’s Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid The Sun has sent a message to readers warning them that computer hackers may have published their data online after an attack on the paper’s website last month.
The paper’s publisher News Group Newspapers (NGN) said in an email late Monday that details of people who took part in competitions and polls on the Sun’s website may have been taken.
NGN, which is part of News International and published the Sunday tabloid News of the World until its closure amid a phone hacking scandal last month, said names, addresses and phone numbers may have been published. It said no financial or password information was affected.
