Sony’s film and TV studio may have had several films stolen in a Nov. 25 cyberattack that continues to cripple its computer systems, according to a report. The recent picture "Fury," a Brad Pitt war movie, and the yet-to-be-released "Annie" and "Still Alice" have appeared on file-sharing sites, Bloomberg reports, citing an anonymous source.
Sony Pictures called the theft a "criminal matter" in astatement, and said the company is working with law enforcement to address it.
The hacking incident at Sony Pictures Entertainment began when a picture of a skull appeared on company computer screens. The image was accompanied by a message that read Sony had been hacked by #GOP, believe to stand for "Guardians of Peace," and that private data would be released if undisclosed demands weren’t met.
Sony is continuing to investigate the breach, including the possibility it may involve North Korea. The website Re/code said yesterday the studio was looking into whether the attack coincides with the release of "The Interview," a comedy about a CIA plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
