A breach of security at Sony Pictures Entertainment that compromised more than just employees' computers.
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."
The Verge received an e-mail from an address they say is "associated with the hack." It said that the hackers wanted "equality" and that they were working "with other staff with similar interests."
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.
The last major movie piracy incident hit in July when Expendables 3 leaked online three weeks before its release date.
