Sony Hackers NEW THREAT: Get Rid Of All Evidence Of The Interview, Or Else! (VIDEO)
The hackers who forced Sony to cancel the theatrical release of The Interview have reportedly sent the company a new message, calling Sony “very wise” for the decision while threatening to unleash more havoc if the movie winds up leaked in any form.
According to CNN, Sony executives received the new menacing message on Thursday night. It was entitled “Message from GOP,” referring to the “Guardians of Peace” group that has claimed responsibility for the hacking that’s paralyzed the company and Hollywood.
The new message reportedly praises Sony for its “very wise” surrender, adding, “Now we want you never let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy.”
“We still have your private and sensitive data,” say the hackers, who promise to “ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble. And we want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately.”
As CNN puts it, the new message is essentially a “victory lap” for the anonymous, North Korean-backed hackers now holding a major movie studio hostage. Sony has not yet officially commented on the new threats. As Gossip Cop previously reported, earlier this week Sony canceled the planned Christmas Day release for The Interview, which follows an assassination plot against North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Hollywood and the public at large has been mostly outraged and embarrassed by the decision. See a video report about the new threats below. What do you think?
