In the latest turn of events relating to the hacking of the Sony pictures computers, the personal contacts of various celebrities like Daniel Craig, Natalie Portman and Brad Pitt have been released. The group of hackers known as the “Guardians of Peace” claims responsibility for the hacking of the Sony Computers which led to widespread criticism and tension among the film fraternity. The hackers have leaked unreleased Sony movies into file sharing networks and personal emails and chats of Sony employees have surfaced now. Rumours that the hack had been accompanied by an attempt to extort money quickly gave way to the theory that North Korea had launched the assault as a reprisal for Sony's forthcoming spy-caper film The Interview, in which stars James Franco and Seth Rogen play journalists roped into a CIA plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Last weekend North Korea officially denied any involvement in the Sony cyber attack while congratulating the actions of the hackers involved as "righteous". Pyongyang previously denounced The Interview, due to be released in the US at Christmas, as "undisguised sponsoring of terrorism" and worse. The FBI is looking into the hacking of the Sony Pictures and Sony have also drafted in FireEye’s median team to look into the response of the hack.
