Last week news hit the media that Sony Pictures was hit by an attack by a hacker group called #GOP (short for Guardians of Peace). The attackers gained access to numerous internal computers and claimed it would leak sensitive information if their demands weren't met.
It seems the hackers weren't bluffing as they've leaked several upcoming Sony movies to Torrent websites. Screener copies of Annie, Fury, Mr. Turner and Still Alice hit the web, with the attackers stating this is just the tip of the iceberg as they claim to have stolen "under 100TB of data".
If the GOP did pirate the movies, that suggests that there are far worse things to come. We've obtained a copy of the alleged email, and it claims that "under 100 terabytes" of data is going to reach the web in the near future. Suffice it to say that Sony doesn't want to see that happen -- it could reveal the personal information for legions of workers, not to mention production plans. If there's any truth to the threats, the company could be dealing with the repercussions of the data breach for a long, long while.
