Sony Pictures reportedly eyes North Korea after leak of five films

The depth and breadth of the cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment was further revealed this weekend as at least five full-length films have been released on file-sharing sites—including some films that have not yet been released in theaters.

The World War II film Fury, currently in release, is among the films apparently released by hackers on file-sharing sites, as are the soon-to-be-released remake Annie, Mr. Turner, To Write Love on Her Arms, and Still Alice, according to a report by Variety on Saturday. By Sunday, Fury had been downloaded more than 1.2 million times, according to figures provided to Variety by the German IT forensics firm Excipio.

Meanwhile, Sony has reportedly brought in federal law enforcement to investigate the attack and retained the cyber security firm Mandiant to help restore its corporate network, though a Sony Pictures spokesperson would not confirm those reports.
