News > Freddie Mercury Box Set Hackers...?

Added on 06-Sep-2000

Reports are coming in that a police investigation is under way for people who have offered up to 27 tracks from the forthcoming box set over the internet.Numerous reports on UK tv and radio have stated that the police are investigating the 'computer hacking' of various files that have subsequently been found on the internet.



Earlier, virtualtv.com, a streaming media provider, accidently made 10 tracks available for a short time. It seems unlikely that this would illicit a police investigation as this was a result of a mere oversight.



The reports eminating seem to indicate something more sinister.
