Hacked Sky News Twitter account claims Chairman James Murdoch arrested

The official Twitter account of Sky News hacked last night and spreading false tweet message, claiming that Chief Executive and Chairman James Murdoch had been arrested by police in London , according to NakedSecurity report.

The false message cleared but not before other Twitter users had shared it across the network. The @SkyNewsBiz account was later updated to deny the story, and claim that a hacker was most likely responsible.

James Murdoch, of course, has been appearing in the headlines rather than writing them - after being questioned about his company's knowledge of "phone hacking" by the News of the World. A tweet from Sky News - another Murdoch company - claiming that News International's embattled chief executive has been arrested would cause quite a stir.
