Hackers hit canadian news paper website and claim Quebec PM dead

Again a big hacking news and this time it came from Canada. This time hackers hacked the website of a prominent Canadian newspaper early on Tuesday and posted a false news item alleging Quebec Premier Jean Charest had died of a heart attack. This false entry was on the page for more than a hour and it was re tweeted by many users before deletion. But this false news was spreaded among thousands of Internet users.
"We offer our most sincere apologies to the premier. Measures are being taken to find the person responsible for this crime," the newspaper said on its website.
Nothing about the hacking is disclosed by the newspaper. It said that engineers are working to find flaw and the hacker who did this.
