Looks like Sony got to hear from their attackers once again, this time in another chilling e-mail saying they won. The e-mail was received by top executives in Sony in a fashion that addressed Sony’s smart decision to pull the movie.
The e-mail stated how Sony made the right choice by not releasing a movie about the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The hackers promised not to released any more critical data against Sony if the company never releases the movie in anyway. The hackers also warned Sony about the consequences if any leaks or piracy of the movie is released in any way.
Here are some of the contents of the e-mail:
“It was a very wise decision to pull the release of “The Interview”. It will be very useful for you. We ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble.”
The hackers did also mention still having a lot of private information of Sony, and that any move by Sony to release the movie in any way will be countered with the leak of critical private customer information which could ruin the company. Keith Mann hopes they proceed with caution, but they also do not worry too much.
The FBI issued a statement on Friday pointing the finger on North Korea, claiming they were behind the attack. Major companies have a lot more to worry about that the release of a movie, when all their private information can be at stake here.
