UPDATE: A spokesperson for Sony Pictures released a statement soon after WikiLeaks published an archive of leaked Sony documents. “The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures was a malicious criminal act, and we strongly condemn the indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information on WikiLeaks. The attackers used the dissemination of stolen information to try to harm SPE and its employees, and now WikiLeaks regrettably is assisting them in that effort. We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain and will continue to fight for the safety, security, and privacy of our company and its more than 6,000 employees.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Back in November, hackers targeted Sony Pictures. As a result, several emails and documents were released to specific media outlets and, ultimately, the public. Now the complete collection of leaked documents is available in a searchable archive on WikiLeaks.
“The Sony Archives offer a rare insight into the inner workings of a large, secretive multinational corporation,” a press release on the WikiLeaks website says. “The work publicly known from Sony is to produce entertainment; however, The Sony Archives show that behind the scenes this is an influential corporation, with ties to the White House… with an ability to impact laws and policies, and with connections to the US military-industrial complex.”
