Washington – The PBS website was hacked over the weekend by a group unhappy with a documentary aired by Frontline about WikiLeaks, Wired reports.

Thousands of passwords were stolen, and a fake story indicating that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur had been found alive in New Zealand was posted to the site for PBS Newshour.

A hacker group called Lulzsec claimed credit for the attack via Twitter.

Supporters of the imprisoned suspected WikiLeaks leaker Bradley Manning criticized the Frontline documentary for focusing too much on Manning’s purported emotional problems, and not detailing his detainment in solitary confinement for nearly a year.
