WikiLeaks Adds Thousands Of Hacked Sony Emails To Website

WikiLeaks apparently is not through with Sony. The document-sharing company headed by Julian Assange announced it has added “thousands” more hacked Sony Pictures emails to its searchable database.

The announcement came Thursday via WikiLeaks’ Twitter account.

This comes two weeks after WikiLeaks announced it had published 30,287 hacked Sony documents and 173,132 emails in a massive archive on its site. At that time, Assange claimed that this archive “shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation,” and argued they belong in the public domain.

On April 16, Sony condemned that latest dump in a statement which read in part: “We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain and will continue to fight for the safety, security, and privacy of our company and its more than 6,000 employees.”

The initial leak of private emails, mainly between Sony toppers Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton, and company documents, came in December. The U.S. government later named North Korea as the source of the attack, motivated by Sony plans to release The Interview, about an attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
