Earlier today we reported that Sony had denied claims that PSN was hacked and if you thought that was the end of it, you’d be mistaken. While Sony PSN might not have been hacked, it looks like another division of Sony has – Sony Pictures. According to reports, Sony Picture employees were recently greeted with an image which you can see in the screenshot above.
The image shows a threatening message left behind by the hackers, followed by a handful of URLs which apparently is where the hackers might have uploaded sensitive information they might have stolen from Sony Pictures, although we highly suggest that you do not follow these URLs as they could just as easily contain malware that might infect your computer.
The hackers have made demands and are threatening to release even more documents if Sony does not give in to them. The files seem to be primarily financial records and password files, so if you were wondering if there might be any movie or trailer leaks, that doesn’t seem to be the case just yet.
Employees at Sony Pictures are unable to do any work as they are unable to send email, use their phones or their computers. In a statement issued by Sony, “We are investigating an IT matter.” However according to one employee who spoke to the folks at Deadline, they painted a slightly more grim picture by saying, “We are down, completely paralyzed.”
