The wonderful world of e-mail moves into the News Corp headlines today as the Australian Financial Review puts online a selection from 14,400 e-mails it accessed in preparing its report on the alleged sabotage of Pay-TV operators by a secret unit said to be connected to News Corp.
If you don't have time for 14,400 e-mails, this conversation will give you a hint of it all. This message does not refer to an Australian company.
Instead the company at the centre of it is ONdigital, the British ITV company which, according to Panorama, crashed after it was sabotaged by thousands of viewers being given free access to its programmes.

A website (that also promotes an alleged hack for Sky Digital) advertises a hack for OnDigital:
Boxed decoder set
Simply the boxed OnDigital decoder with internal mod allowing freeview of all avaliable channels (100% undectectable 18 mth guarantee)
