WikiLeaks has done yet another data dump of classified documents, this time of 276,394 Sony Corp. communications, including email, travel calendars, contact lists, expense reports and private files.
The whistleblower website disclosed the file release on Thursday, via its Twitter account. In April, WikiLeaks published its first set of 30,287 Sony documents and 173,132 email exchanges. Those documents were said to contain a series of incriminating disclosures about Sony, including “an investigation for bribery,” according to WikiLeaks.
WikiLeaks added a new set of records to its online database of documents stolen from Sony Pictures Entertainment and made public by hackers.
The new information includes “legal entanglements including an investigation for bribery,” WikiLeaks said in a Twitter post on Thursday. The organization, led by Julian Assange, is known for making unauthorized documents public. In April, it created a searchable, permanent library for Sony records that were stolen and originally posted by hackers in 2014.
The first company to try to make a business out of streaming gameplay over the Internet will soon be shutting down its service. OnLive announced today that its servers will go offline on April 30, and that the company is selling its portfolio of patents to Sony Computer Entertainment America.
At a Game Developers Conference event today, Sony revealed more plans for the company's previously announced Project Morpheus VR headset, which will be coming in the first half of 2016.
A security company in the U.S. has provided further evidence that last year’s devastating hacking attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment was carried out by a group with ties to North Korea.
The FBI has already named North Korea as the source of the attack, but some security experts have been skeptical, in part because the FBI didn’t disclose all the details of its investigation.
