Sony’s unreleased films being hacked
One of the biggest hacks in the piracy world, which is being investigated for criminal charges.
Sony’s unreleased movies “Anne” , “Fury” , “Mr. Turner,” “Still Alice” and “To Write Love on Her Arms.” have been downloaded in the P2P network , of which Brad Pitt’s Fury is the most popular download.
A source with knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the hacking earlier this week divulged that the multi-title leak is likely related to the hacking. Many of the leaked copies are watermarked.
In the attack on the studio’s corporate systems Nov. 24, an image of a skeleton appeared on company computers with a message that said, “Hacked by #GOP,” with the group behind it calling itself “Guardians of Peace.” The message threatened to release “secrets and top secrets” of the company. Currently being investigated is a connection between upcoming Sony movie “The Interview,” and North Korea.
A Sony spokeswoman said that, “The theft of Sony Pictures Entertainment content is a criminal matter, and we are working closely with law enforcement to address it.” We’ve reached out to Sony for further comments, and will update this post as soon as we hear back.
