Sony Documents, Emails Go Online At WikiLeaks
A huge collection of internal documents and emails from Sony Pictures Entertainment--stolen from the company in a massive hacking last year tied to the movie "The Interview"--has been posted online by WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks said it had posted a searchable database of 30,287 documents and 173,132 emails from Sony, claiming it did so to show "the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation." WikiLeaks said in a statement that the documents were "public domain", despite the fact that they were stolen by hackers. The U.S. has blamed the massive shutdown of Sony's computers and hacking of Sony's corporate information on North Korea. The Interview makes fun of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
