The National Football League became the latest high-profile victim of hackers as the league’s official Twitter account was intercepted and wrongly announced the passing of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL quickly deleted the incorrect tweet and said Mr. Goodell was “alive and well,” according to Brian McCarthy, the NFL’s vice president of corporate communications.

Mr. McCarthy also confirmed that the league’s account had been hacked. “We have engaged law enforcement to look into the matter,” Mr. McCarthy said. “We are reviewing and strengthening our cybersecurity measures.”

"Upon further review, Roger Goodell has been dead to NFL fans for years. The Tweet stands."

I think I heard something in passing about this fraudulent report of Mr. Goodell's passing.  Bummer.
