You might recall that a couple of weeks ago, Sony Pictures was hacked. The hacked was followed by leaked movies which were posted online by the hackers. Well it seems that hacking Sony Pictures and disabling them wasn’t enough, but the hackers have now sent out a mass threat to Sony Pictures employees, according to a report from Variety.
According to the alleged email the hackers sent to Sony Pictures employees, it reads, “Many things beyond imagination will happen at many places of the world. Our agents find themselves act in necessary places. Please sign your name to object the false of the company at the email address below if you don’t want to suffer damage. If you don’t, not only you but your family will be in danger.”
While it is unclear if the email sent is indeed from the hackers, it has been speculated that there is a chance it could be due to the same phrasing used, not to mention the theme found in earlier messages. So far it is unclear as to why the hackers have targeted Sony Pictures and where the hackers come from.
However earlier reports have suggested that the hackers could come from or could have been sent by North Korea, although this has since been denied by North Korea as to their involvement in the hack, claiming that the accusations are fabricated so as to target them.
