Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Release Date: July 21

Only one month to go! Anticipation is at its peak even as news comes out that a hacker has got access to the digital copy of author J.K. Rowling's seventh and final book by breaking into a computer at London-based Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.

Warning: The rest of this post might contain spoilers about the end of the final Harry Potter book, or possibly a lot of made-up crap - don't read it if you think it will ruin the story.

For months now, leading up to the book's July 21 release, legions of Harry Potter fans have debated whether Rowling killed Harry or one of his best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, in the final Harry Potter book. "Gabriel" has posted information at Web site http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2007/Jun/0380.html that, if true, would answer that question.

"We make this spoiler to make reading of the upcoming book useless and boring," Gabriel said in the posting and he includes several details that he claimed came form the publishers computer, because of open access and exploits use that were located on Milw0rm.com.

Kyle Good, a spokesman for U.S. distributor Scholastic Corp., would not say whether the posting was accurate, but did warn readers to be skeptical about anything on the Web that claims to have inside information on the book's plot. "There is a whole lot of junk flying around," she said. "Consider this one more theory."

An earlier supposed Harry potter Book 7 leak was found out to be a fan fiction. However, this news has actually made it to the headlines of major newspapers and online journals. I hope its all untrue!

    This guy "Gabriel" is a complete fraud! This hoax smells of BS! This is just some tart who can't think for himself and wants to try and spread gossip around in an attempt effect book sales. I mean seriously, saying that he was doing this because Pope Benedict does not believe children should read the books because it will promote the Neopagan faith based religions? Then to go on and say how he did it...well anyone can explain how it can be done with a little research, but to say you did it and claim that a lot of people in the publishing company have a copy of it is rediculous. I'm sure J.K. wouldn't allow many people access to it in fear of a leak.
    Anyhow, even if this isn't a hoax...who cares? I knew Dumbledore died before even reading Half Blood Prince but I still read it because reading the book cover to cover is what makes the experience so enjoying and why these books are amazing.
