‘Anonymous’ Threatens Sony, Says Hackers Aren’t Korean
[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 Pastebin.com 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]
