      PBS hacked for second time in a month

      WASHINGTON (AP) - PBS says its website has been hacked for at least the second time in a month - the latest in a string of intrusions into such sites as Sony, Lockheed Martin, Nintendo and others.

      PBS spokeswoman Anne Bentley says one section of a website in the PBS collection of sites was defaced Friday. The affected website was for the program "Becoming American." Bentley says a "very small number" of administrative user names and encrypted passwords were stolen.

      Arlington, Va.-based PBS says it has seen an increasing number of intrusion attempts recently.

      At the end of May, hackers broke into the PBS website and posted a phony story claiming the late rapper Tupac Shakur was alive. A group that claimed responsibility complained about a recent "Frontline" investigation on Wikileaks.
