Wired's public upload image viewer, which generates a page containing an image you upload under a Wired logo banner, was hacked to produce an official-looking page that seemed to indicate Steve Jobs had suffered a heart attack (if you ignore all the grammar and spelling errors, that is).
You'll recall that last year someone posted a fake story
