WikiLeaks Publishes Hacked Sony Documents

Some of the documents were previously released in an earlier leak, but new ones emerge as well.

WikiLeaks is republishing all of the information released in last year's Sony hacks - and this time it is fully searchable and downloadable, according to The New York Times. The hackers have organized this leak into what they called "The Sony Archives." These archives contain 30,287 documents, 173,132 emails, and other sensitive information, proved a disruptive and embarrassing security gaffe for the studio

"This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation," WikiLeaks editor in chief Julian Assange said in a statement. "It is newsworthy and at the centre of a geo-political conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there."

Sony, who is still reeling from the last hack, where they went on the offensive about Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, and Jennifer Lawrence, is worried. "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," Sony Pictures said in a statement. "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."

The leaks cost the company millions of dollars, and potential ruined their relationships with well-known, profit making stars.
