CBS News reports that Sony Pictures was the victim of an attack on Nov. 24 when a group called #GOP reportedly threatened to release sensitive information unless certain demands were met. An image of a skull appeared on employees' computer screens saying, "We have already warned you, and this is just a beginning. We will continue until our request be met."

Now, Variety has reported that at least five new movies from Sony Pictures are on file-sharing sites online including unreleased movies Annie, Mr. Turner, Still Alice and To Write Love on Her Arms.

Although Fury is out in theaters, it is also on the list of movies being downloaded. As of this morning, Variety reports that it has been downloaded 1.2 million times.
