Hackers recently accessed the Twitter account for Sky News' business desk and posted a tweet claiming that James Murdoch had been arrested by London police.

"The false tweet was erased within minutes, but not before other Twitter users had shared it across the network," writes Sophos' Graham Cluley.

"The @SkyNewsBiz account was later updated to deny the story, and claim that a hacker was most likely responsible," Cluley writes.
