Twitter Hacked - President Barak Obama Is Dead!

Fox News twitter feed was hacked on sunday 4th July 2011 by a group called Script Kiddies . False tweets reports were published that said : "Barack Obama has just passed. The President is dead. A sad 4th of July, indeed. President Barack Obama is dead."
This false tweet remained for hours on twitter servers and around half of the twitter followers started spreading the news like fire! Almost everyone was shocked and some even took it for real. Almost all tweets have been deleted the hacked account is been restored. This has raised serious questions on Twitter security for its users. However some claim that may be someone succeeded in stealing the password and then he might have published the tweets. Fox news has asked for a detailed investigation from Twitter. The Attacker group was identified by BBC NEWS.
No matter whoever did this, I personally thing it is really funny of Fox news that someone accessed their secured servers and managed to steal a password. I don't know what the truth may be but this news today was shocking and funny at the same time. Let me know what do you know about this latest news.
