For Second Time in a Month, PBS Website Is Hacked

Jun 27, 2011  •  Post A Comment

For the second time in a month, PBS said its website has been hacked, reports the Associated Press. Some data was taken, which PBS spokeswoman Anne Bentley described as a "very small number" of administrative user names and encrypted passwords.

One section of the website was also defaced, which was for the program "Becoming American," the story notes.

As previously reported, PBS.org was hacked in May after "Frontline" aired a documentary about WikiLeaks that apparently angered some of the group’s supporters.

Other high-profile hackings have also taken place recently, with targets including Sony, Lockheed Martin and Nintendo.
