    studio heads are gonna roll for this. the powers-that-be are already moving fast!

    Sony Pictures is in full-blown damage-control mode and has called an
    all-hands meeting following another huge leak of sensitive, confidential
    info.
    (already deleted) https://gist.github.com/anonymous/7b9a0a0ac94065ccfc5b

    The new trove of data released by the so-called GOP (Guardians of Peace)
    includes more private employee info, actor phone numbers and traveling
    aliases, legal claims against Sony Pictures, film budgets, scripts and
    more.

    http://fusion.net/story/32623/sony-pictures-hack-exposes-hollywood-celebrities-secret-aliases/

    As pointed out by the WSJ
    http://www.wsj.com/articles/victims-of-sony-breach-left-fuming-1418082738

    it also includes private info of some 40,000 Sony Pictures ex-employees
    like home addresses, previous salaries and social security numbers.

    Many of those folks are incensed with the Culver City-based company,
    which gave them no guidance on how to protect their identities or sign
    up for credit monitoring.

    Suffice to say, much of the information could be highly damaging to
    Sony's reputation and bottom line. As pointed out by IFusion

    http://fusion.net/story/32536/even-...fice-projections-and-brad-pitts-phone-number/

    the hackers have thrown many of its business practices into the open,
    which may make future negotiations with high profile actors, technicians
    and vendors difficult.

    Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton sent a memo to all employees saying
    that it had "recognized experts working on this matter" and that the FBI
    had taken control of the investigation.

    http://deadline.com/2014/12/sony-hacking-michael-lynton-all-hands-meeting-sony-1201315953/

    He also said that employees could meet one-on-one with their managers
    and called an all-hands meeting for this Friday.

    Much of the information could be highly damaging to Sony's reputation
    and bottom line.

    Yesterday, Sony released info
    http://engadget.net/2014/12/08/sony-unparalleled-hack-comments/ from
    the security firm Mandiant, which said the "unprecedented" attack
    would've been difficult to prevent.

    But many employees expressed disbelief that sensitive info like social
    securities numbers and salaries would be kept in unprotected folders by
    a security-conscious company.

    Some experts also doubt Sony's claims that the attack was that
    sophisticated, saying that it should've noticed suspicious activity,
    even if the virus was "undetectable."

    One researcher told Mashable that "to protect their image, they need
    this to be an unpreventable, incredibly sophisticated attack."

    http://mashable.com/2014/12/08/sony-hack-unprecedented-undetectable/

    Meanwhile, the group allegedly responsible for the hack released another
    statement along with the leak. The GOP demanded that Sony "stop
    immediately showing the movie of terrorism" in reference to "The
    Interview," the upcoming Sony Pictures flick that mocks the North Korean
    government.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-12-08/sony-hackers-demand-studio-stop-showing-the-interview-.html

    That marks the first time the hackers have directly referenced the film,
    which was denounced by the rogue nation. However, another recently
    discovered email, sent several days ago, demanded monetary compensation
    instead.

    http://mashable.com/2014/12/08/hackers-emailed-sony-execs/

    All that, along with another email that contained Korean grammatical
    errors, means investigators still have no idea if the attack came from
    North Korea or not.

    Here I believe is the download of the Sony leaks. This is 4 torrent files:

    The only good thing about this is that sony may be forced to sell the rights to Spider man and related characters to Disney in order to pay off the lawsuits they will be getting from all the celebs and former employees.

    I don't get North Korean hackers, why couldn't they have just hacked and used the information they got to sell to criminal organizations instead of releasing so much info at once and not get anything out of it.

    If you're tempted to download torrent files of "Fury," "Annie" or other recently leaked movies, think again. Bootleg copies of the movies surfaced on the Pirate Bay, KickAss Torrents and elsewhere after Sony Pictures Entertainment was hacked.

    The crime is being investigated by the FBI and now a prominent cybersecurity firm is asking: Why does Sony keep getting hacked?

    The short answer, according to a number of cybersecurity experts, is that major companies are hacked all the time. Sony is an especially attractive target because it's an influential, multinational corporation with a variety of intellectual property holdings that customers also trust with their personal information.

    Previous reports have indicated that North Korea is being investigated as the source of the hack, which comes after Sony was hacked earlier this year and briefly knocked offline entirely in 2011.

    So what can the USA or the EU and Japan really do if it is confirmed that North Korea did it? They already are sanctioned like crazy getting a few more isn't going to do anything. The only thing that I could see happening is those countries putting a lifetime ban from entering for anyone that does business with North Korea.

    A reason to make a law to restrict my country's internet policies instead of hollywood making a good movie every now and then. They think they will fix the reason people quit paying the industry to feel robbed. imo

    Hacked Sony Emails Reveal Producer Had Penis Envy
    http://www.tmz.com/2014/12/11/sony-hack-michael-fassbender-penis/#ixzz3Lhj63lPl

    "Michael Fassbender's popularity ... and penis size ... were topics of conversation in the latest round of emails released by the Sony hackers ... revealing one big time producer who's feeling inadequate.

    "This most recent batch of emails revolves around discussion for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, which originally was supposed to be produced by Sony (it's now with Universal).

    "When the topic of Fassbender taking the lead role came up, somehow producer Michael De Luca brought up Fassbender's infamous manhood, saying he "makes you feel bad to have normal sized male genitalia."

    "Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin knocked Fassbender down a notch in another email to producer Scott Rudin, writing, "I don't know who Michael Fassbender is and the rest of the world isn't going to care."

    "In another series of emails, "Community" star Joel McHale wrote to a Sony exec
    asking for a discount on a TV ("Community" is a Sony show). :D

    Sony Tries To Block Files By "DOSing" the Torrent Sites

    Those trying to download files and films from the recent Sony Pictures Entertainment leak are being widely frustrated thanks to a large number of Torrent filesharing nodes that advertise fake "seeds."

    These files are offered via the Bittorrent file sharing protocol, and they match the signature of the stolen data while containing no usable content. Instead the bad seeds, which now may outnumber the computers actively sharing the actual files stolen from Sony, provide a download of corrupted or fake versions of the archive files for the vast majority of individuals attempting to access them.

    Meanwhile, the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies continue to investigate the hack at Sony Pictures. A spokesperson for the FBI said that the agency could not yet comment on the investigation.

    But in testimony at a hearing of the US Senate's Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs yesterday, FBI Cyber Division Assistant Director Joe Demarest told senators that the means used to attack Sony Pictures "would have slipped or gotten past 90 percent" of organizations' security measures.

    From what I've read, Sony's security team sound like a bunch of amateurs.

    They were lambasted for bad practices a few years back (when they were previously hacked) and not one person was sacked, let alone held to account.

    They kept passwords in a file named 'Passwords' - is it possible to be any less security conscious?

    The funny thing is that most people working at companies as large as Sony are morons, especially those that are supposed to be the smart ones.

    I have no data or sources to back this statement up but I truly believe in it from general experience with people and things I've come across.

    The thing is, the larger the corporation the more vulnerable it becomes as it is harder to control.
