O'Reilly Site Hacked

Hacker's can be a vindictive lot as Faux News Talking head Bill O'Reilly is finding out. Soon after O'Reilly condemned the hacking of Sarah Palin's email, hackers retaliated by hacking his site and grabbing user data from his user list.
A hacker claims to have cracked the web site of Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly and purloined a list of subscribers to the site, which includes their names, e-mail addresses, city and state, and the password they use for their registration to the site.

The attack was retaliation for comments that O'Reilly made on the air this week about web sites that published e-mails obtained from the Yahoo account of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, according to a press release distributed by WikiLeaks late Friday.

Watch O'Reilly's comments that drew the ire of the hackers:
