On Friday, Variety reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment employees received an e-mail from hackers threatening their families. Sources told Variety that employees were told to turn off their phones after receiving the message.
The e-mail is just the latest affront to Sony in the last two weeks since it was hacked in late November. Sony Pictures Entertainment suffered a devastating blow to its internal corporate network at the hands of hackers who promptly released passwords, e-mails, identification documents for cast and crew members of Sony's productions, business documents listing salaries, and media files from employees' computers.
Today's e-mail was poorly written and cryptically asked that employees “Please sign your name to object the false of the company at the email address below.”
