WikiLeaks recently republished Sony’s 170,000 emails and over 20,000 documents that were hacked in a last year cyber-attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Last November, Sony Pictures Entertainment was under a cyber-attack just before releasing The Interview, the comedy that made fun of North Korean regime. Although, North Korea denied the involvement, many believe that North Korea stands behind this cyber- attack on Sony. In December last year, the group “Guardians of Peace” threatened to attack cinemas that were screening the movie. After these threats were addressed, Sony was encouraged to cancel the release of the movie.This year US enforced new sanctions on North Korea as a response to the cyber-attack on Sony.
Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks released the statement: “This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation… It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there.” and he also said that hacked documents are a proof of cooperation and relationship between government and Hollywood. Julian Assange is currently at Ecuadorian Embassy in London after two women in Sweden accused Julian Assange of rape and sexual assault.
Sonny released the statement: “We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain.”
