The popular website Telegraph.co.uk has been hacked by a group of whitehat hackers called Hackersblog. The group claims to have the goal of putting online security problems in the spotlight.

The group used a suite of applications and security testing tools on Firefox to steal users' passwords and emails in plain text. The hacker was able to retrieve 700,000 emails.

According to the group, they need to change their Telegraph passwords. Had the attack been by real hackers the hoards of emails for a larger penis and cheap pain meds would already be on the way.
