EDIT: Here it is

Quote:

(CBS/What's Trending) - There seems to be no security too tough for LulzSec to hack, eh? Add Canada's Conservative Party website to the list of victims of "the world's leaders in high-quality entertainment at your expense".
After hacking into Sony's system yet again, this time stealing and releasing 54MB of Sony Computer Entertainment Developer Network source code and internal network maps of Sony BMG, the group targeted our friendly neighbors to the North.

LulzSec hacked onto The Conservative Party of Canada's website to post a fictional press release declaring, "Prime Minister Rushed to Hospital after Breakfast Incident." The post went on to say that Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, was rushed to the hospital after choking on a hash brown. The whole incident was an elaborate fabrication by LulzSec, which have amply proved they have a witty sense of humor.
The hack was noticed when Twitter updates automated by the website announced the Prime Minister's potato troubles. The post was so well integrated into the website that Member of Parliament Chris Alexander tweeted hoping the Prime Minister will have a speedy recovery.
The whole joke is embarrassing for the security of the Conservative Party's website and for those gullible enough to believe it (then again why wouldn't you take news from a government website at face value?).
This is just the latest antics from the seemingly untouchable and far-reaching hacking organization. Previous stunts include 6 Sony hacks (these guys must have really hated Playstation), a hack into both Fox and PBS's systems, and even an infiltration of a FBI affiliate called InfraGard (http://infragardatlanta.org/).
Authorities are no closer to finding and punishing LulzSec for their Internet crimes and the pranks look like they are going to continue

They'll be caught eventually, the government would probably not spend too much into looking into Sony getting hacked but ****ing with the CIA, they'll definitely put a good team into investigating this.
