      Sony continues to be damaged from the hack

      It really looks bad for Sony at the present time.

      Not only did the hackers download various movies which haven't even been released yet, but they also downloaded and are now publishing some of the internal correspondence.

      Sony Pictures email hack: what we've learned about greed, racism and sexism | Technology | The Guardian

      It doesn't look good when powerful executives start being racist towards their president. Paying women less than a man might be something acceptable where they are, but many others around the world will disagree.

      One aspect I'm not happy with hough is that some of the employees have received threatening emails.

      I guess that things won't be getting any better for them.

      No doubt the FBI are having a private laugh too as they investigate the hack. With all the facts which are coming out though, I think that someone might turn around and say "good bye you sexist, racist people".

      Of course the question which we might well ask is what of the other big studios?

      Perhaps lesser known is that the playstation network (psn) was hacked the other day too.

      This after a ddos attack on psn in august by the same people who also caused an aircraft to be grounded thanks to a fake bomb threat.
      Why? Because the sony president of online entertainment was onboard.

      Re: Sony continues to be damaged from the hack

      If the PR consultants don't clean this up promptly, I wonder if people will stop purchasing the Sony Playstation 4?

      Perhaps people will stop writing software to work on it?

      Will the TV Broadcasters and Cinema chains refuse to shop pictures from the Sony stables?

      Or will the public just accept that the executives are both sexist and racist and get on with their lives?

      They are also a bit peeved by buyers who bought the new Anniversary edition for next to nothing and now have them on eBay for a ridiculous price.

      That is just totally silly.

      3 grand just for a different cover?

      Simply just buy a standard box, and a spray can...

      The thing is the first 94 only paid £19.94 for them! Even selling them at the same price as a regular PS 4 would make them a handsome profit. I suppose there will always be people with more money than sense around to buy them at inflated prices.

      Re: Sony continues to be damaged from the hack

      Well Sony's PR team are now having a go at the press for reporting the stories...

      BBC News - Sony Pictures cautions press over hacking leaks
      Sony Pictures has contacted some US news outlets in an attempt to limit the damage caused by the hacking of its internal computer system last month.
      Hmmm... I guess they really don't want us to know how bad they have been behaving.

      TorrentFreak has run a couple of stories on the topic, including one which showed what Sony's plan of action was against copyright issues.

      Leak Exposes Hollywood's Global Anti-Piracy Strategy | TorrentFreak

      Some of the others show what lengths Sony really is prepared to go to in order to have a go at the pirates:

      Faking it: Sony Planned to Flood Torrent Sites With "Promo" Torrents | TorrentFreak

      Respected stars: Morgan Freeman: Movie Pirates Have Tiny, Useless Penises | TorrentFreak

      Personally I would love the US President to order the FBI to stop investigating as Sony appears not to give a hoot about respecting him.

      Re: Sony continues to be damaged from the hack

      Wow! The Guardian have posted some of the contents of the 3 page letter that was sent by Sony's Lawyers to various news agencies...

      Sony orders news outlets to stop reporting on stolen data | Technology | The Guardian
      ...“Sony Pictures Entertainment does not consent to your possession, review, copying, dissemination, publication, uploading, downloading or making any use of the stolen information,” the letter read.

      ‘No choice but to hold you responsible for any damage or loss’

      The company also asked recipients to “destroy the stolen information” and added: “If you do not comply with this request, and the stolen information is used or disseminated by you in any manner, Sony Pictures Entertainment will have no choice but to hold you responsible for any damage or loss arising from such use or dissemination.”

      The data was stolen as part of an attack by hacker group Guardians of Peace on Sony Pictures that crippled its entire computer network and forced employees back to using pen and paper.

      The data included film scripts, five movies, personal details including medical records of actors and past and present Sony employees, payment details, user names and passwords and email archives for a number of top studio executives.

      ‘Sony Pictures into the worst state’


      The hackers have threatened to continue releasing data including a “Christmas gift” that “will be larger quantities of data. And it will be more interesting. The gift will surely give you much more pleasure and put Sony Pictures into the worst state,” they added...
      Of course upsetting the very same people whom you rely on for advertising your products could place Sony in a catch 22 position.
