CNN has apparently obtained a copy of an email sent to Sony execs last night from somebody identifying himself as the leader of what is assumed to be the group behind the break-in and release of movies and emails from Sony computers.

From CNN Money:


The hacker message is effectively a victory lap, telling the studio, "Now we want you never let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy."

The message also says, "And we want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately."

It warns the studio executives that "we still have your private and sensitive data" and claims that they will "ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble."


This is what happens when you cave to the demands of extortionists. Inspired by their success, they will continue to make new threats and demands. Congratulations Sony, you've laid yourself over a barrel.

Yep, you nailed it.

If I was SONY I would have that movie EVERYWHERE, Netflix, YOUTUBE, CBS, and The Home and Garden Channel.

Our new slogan would be "SONY, because F KimJong ,that's why" in 50 ft letters in Times Square for the world to see.

Sky news are now showing on their breaking news bottom banner "u.s officals have told sky news that an investigation has found that north korea was responsible for the hacking". The plot thickens!!

Sony hasn't put out a good movie in years.

This is the best advertising they could possibly buy.

I am somewhat concerned about this, but my main concern is that a group of hackers, from anywhere (it matters not where) have managed to circumvent and curtail a companies right to freedom of expression, or the rights of the actors, directors, producers and financiers of this movie for that matter.

I could not give a God damn that data has been stolen from Sony, and I really could not possibly care less what happens to it. But this movie HAS to come out, as a matter of principle now, more than anything else. I am sure it would have been a total shambles of a film anyway, and I would not have paid to see it, but I damned well will now, if indeed it ever sees the light of day.

We've all seen statements by NK before.

The rhythm is wrong, the wording is far too western.. no mention of "supreme leader" or any other commonly used rhetoric we are so very used to seeing with a North Korean statement.

This attack comes not from NK, but from another source trying to inflame all sides into a shooting match, be it political or physical.

We are being duped.. but it's not by Sony, it's not by NK, it stinks of Western intervention and shady darknet trolls.

Just can't help thinking the US is somehow behind it. A virtual false flag of sorts.

The only point that holds me back from that is China will not allow NK to be boarded. Right on its border? Not a chance.

Or is this China setting up NK for a Chinese invasion to get rid of Kimmy and take the land closer to SK and Japan? One step closer to the US as well. All the time telling the US that they are backing up the US from NK terrorists?

Wild? Yup.

Out of the realm of possibilities? Is that even possible anymore?

Peace

Unless the information they have is more valuable or condemning which could implicate criminal charges not only at Sony but possibly political figures.

This is really interesting to watch as it pans out. TO BAD the movie wasn't done by Universal Pictures (COMCAST) so its executive could get a taste of how their customers feel.

Yeah, the evidence is flimsy that North Korea is even behind this.

Also, it appears as if it was blessed as propaganda by the government and RAND.

Yup, that's exactly what I'd do. They got nothing to lose now I they do, The best thing they could do now is give a middle finger salute and as you said, flood the market with this movie.
The public is getting sick of this and what ever they have on Sony I feel the public outrage would be minimal in the big picture. I wasn't going to see this movie, but if it's released, yeah, I'll either buy or go see it.

It will be leaked long before that.

Believe it.

Because like so many I am seeing are too stupid to realize that SONY is a Japanese company not an Ameican governmental body. Obama, as much as you would like to blame him, has no control over the actions of a Japanese company. Just another right wing fail.
