Will The Leaks Ever Stop For Sony?

GOP, or "Guardians Of Peace" has heaped more bad news on Sony. More than likely there will be new revelations -- ones that Sony would prefer were not publicly available.

Dubbed "A Christmas present", GOP has released a new torrent-based file approximately 6 GB in size.  The contents of this file are as yet unknown, but yet again Sony -- or agents on behalf of Sony -- have managed to get the links removed from popular file- and link-sharing sites.

Accompanying the release was a "love note" from GOP. This was a new note but basically reiterating the same message to Sony to meet GOPs demands. Demands that have not been made public from either Sony or GOP.

The sooner SPE accept our demands, the better, of course. The farther time goes by, the worse state SPE will be put into and we will have Sony go bankrupt in the end.

Message to SPE Staffers. We have a plan to release emails and privacy of the Sony Pictures employees. If you don't want your privacy to be released [sic], tell us your name and business title to take off your data.

This additional content lends credence to the statement made by GOP that it has many more terabytes of data to release. (Some educated estimates suggest up to 100 TB.) The release may well be the first of many releases that Sony will have to act to contain or respond to. As if the above wasn't enough to darken Sony's Christmas, the first lawsuits against filed against the company by staff members are beginning to hit.
