[su_right_ad]The online group ‘Anonymous’ says more hacks will come if they don’t show “The Interview” and that the hackers aren’t Korean.

A new threat against Sony came tonight on from a group identifying itself as Anonymous. Is it legit? They’re telling Sony now to release “The Interview” or else– more hacks coming from their databases. The letter threatens both Sony and CEO Michael Lynton. So now what? Release, don’t release. It’s as if “The Interview” were a serious political movie.

The document, which has been removed from Pastebin, reads, in part:

I Dear Mr. Michael Lynton (CEO of Sony Entertainment),

We shall first-off begin this message with an expression of sympathy as you have failed to release “The Interview” as you believe that hackers shall carry out a new operation to cause malicious damage within your organisation.

I would like to inform you that we all know the hacks didn’t come from North Korea (we think everybody knows about this already).

What we would like to say is that by not releasing “The Interview”, you are denying us the privilege of the Freedom Of Information Act (1966).[su_csky_ad]

    It’s like being stuck in one of these bad movies. Nobody was ever going to see it anyway – they show all the good parts in the trailer.

      “It’s like being stuck in one of these bad movies.”
      Well, it’s starring Seth Rogen, so that goes without saying. 🙂

        Parts of Pineapple Express, were the funniest things I’d ever seen but they are so uneven. Mostly not on the good side.

    There’s important “information” that we need to obtain from a Seth Rogen movie?

    This is getting beyond absurd.

    why aren’t they going after the people who hacked SONY to begin with?

    ANONYMOUS is on the wrong side of the argument on this one.

      I don’t think they actually care that Sony was hacked, just that they can’t watch the movie over the Xmas break.

      Actually, might want to investigate why some of the Collective known as Anonymous and others continue to hack SONY (not the first time and won’t be the last). SONY is one of the biggest writers and backers of SOPA ,CISPA and the latest version, CISA. SONY is part of the push for TPP and TTIP.
      SONY stands against internet freedom and, of course, freedom of speech as well as against the interests of the people.

      Hactivism comes in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes…as well as reasons from just plain “;cuz we can” to action in support of the people.

      There is no “wrong” side of this one, unless, of course, one wants to stand with propaganda promotion by your corporate whoreship of Wall St

        To your point, received this from DemandProgress today:

        One of the most damning revelations from the recent Sony leaks is that Hollywood has not yet given up on SOPA, the dangerous bill that would lead to online censorship by giving content owners (Hollywood, the record labels, and others) heavy-handed powers to shutdown entire websites.

        Three years ago, the Internet community historically joined together
        to stop SOPA and online censorship from passing in Congress, but now SOPA is popping back up in state capitols across the country. Hollywood knows it can’t win when we fight back. That’s why it’s going to the states to sneak SOPA in through the back door.

    Atypical language construct for Anonymous

    I would like to inform you that we all know…

    Previously, Anonymous has, to the best of my knowledge, referred to itself (the collective) in the plural: We. As in “We would like to inform you…” I would actually expect more concise language like “We know the hacks didn’t come from…”
