Harry Potter Hacked?

Illustration for article titled Harry Potter Hacked?

It's very unlikely, but someone claims to have hacked into the publishing house that distributes the Harry Potter books (Bloomsbury) and obtained the final manuscript of the soon-to-arrive 7th book. This man (kid) supposedly got into the computers of the publisher by sending a link to a browser exploit through email and having the publisher click on it.


Don't click if you don't want potential spoilers.

Okay, they can't form a coherent sentence, but they can exploit the system of one of the largest publishers in the world, obtaining a copy of the most protected book in the world?

Come on, these morons couldn't exploit cash out of an ATM with a valid PIN number.
