WikiLeaks has added thousands more of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s hacked emails in its database, as mentioned in a Twitter post on Thursday.
The cyber organization headed by Julian Assange has taken a major step in publishing activities beyond governmental bodies and military complex. The emails from Sony Pictures were leaked after a cyberattack last November.
Providing a searchable database of hacked material may induce legal complications for the company. However, a limiting factor is that the organization is headed by a shadowy figure, and it is not known where the headquarter is located.
SPE lawyer David Boies warned media not to publish any information released by WikiLeaks. According to Bloomberg Business, the lawyer said, “SPE does not consent to your possession, review, copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading, or making any use of the Stolen Information.”
A total of 30,287 documents and 173,132 emails were added to the searchable database over the past few weeks. The database enables keyword and Boolean search, which makes finding data easy.
Information available on the website range from corporate to personal, including splits and earnings of various SPE units. Apart from that, netizens will find security-compromising employee data highly discouraged by Sony.
