The hacker group behind the attack on Sony Corp.’s film division released another mass of private data on Monday, including a number of corporate emails. The group, which calls itself “Guardians of Peace,” or GOP, threatened Sony Pictures Entertainment with further action if it were to release the comedy film “The Interview.”
GOP said Sony management has “refused” to comply with its demands posted on filesharing service GitHub, which has often been used by hackers as an anonymous bulletin board. The data includes a purported collection of emails from Amy Pascal, chairman of Sony Picture Entertainment's motion pictures group, and Steve Mosko, president of Sony Pictures Television.
“Stop immediately showing the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the War!” the hackers wrote. “You, SONY & FBI, cannot find us.”
The film stars Seth Rogen as a journalist who is granted a rare interview with the Kim Jong-Un and who is tasked by the CIA with assassinating the North Korean leader. North Korea has denied that it was behind the attacks on Sony, but praised the group’s actions as “righteous.” The country's U.N. ambassador has called the film’s release an “act of war.”
GOP also said on the file-sharing site that it did not send an email that threatened Sony employees. The studio has declined to comment on the attack, which hackers claim includes 100 terabytes of data.
