A breach of security at Sony Pictures Entertainment that compromised more than just employees’ computers.
CBS News reports that Sony Pictures was the victim of an attack on Nov. 24 when a group called #GOP reportedly threatened to release sensitive information unless certain demands were met. An image of a skull appeared on employees’ computer screens saying, “We have already warned you, and this is just a beginning. We will continue until our request be met.”;
The Verge received an e-mail from an address they say is “associated with the hack.”; It said that the hackers wanted “equality”; and that they were working “with other staff with similar interests.”;
Now, Variety has reported that at least five new movies from Sony Pictures are on file-sharing sites online including unreleased movies Annie, Mr. Turner, Still Alice and To Write Love on Her Arms.
The last major movie piracy incident hit in July when Expendables 3 leaked online three weeks before its release date.
