Sony has been having a bad year when it comes to security, and it’s only gotten worse. A report from Tech Crunch says that WikiLeaks added 276,294 documents that were stolen via cyber-attacks on Sony’s databases last year. These documents include private matters, financial matters, and private emails.
Most of the stolen files were related to financial and legal matters, but there were some files about the company’s insights on movie production. The attack was done by a group who dubbed themselves the “Guardians of Peace.” The group exposed emails from executives who probably wanted their email to remain private while crippling a significant portion of Sony’s infrastructure.
The file dump has been named “Sony Files Part 2” and seems to be a sort of commemoration for WikiLeaks’s founder, Julian Assange, who has been staying at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to avoid extradition for his controversial site.
The files are ready for all to sea on the WikiLeaks website for anyone interested in the inner workings of the company. According to the site, of particular interest are the sections that outline Sony’s legal woes, especially the bribery investigations.
Even though a massive amount of information has been leaked, it isn’t too farfetched that there might be more leaks files added to the bunch in the future.
