Hackers Tell Sony Not To Release "The Interview"

"We are sending you our warning again," the hackers said.

Posted on December 8, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. ET

Sony Pictures Entertainment

A new message posted on the codesharing service GitHub, along with a new cache of documents, warned Sony against releasing "the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the War!"

While the film is not identified in the message, it is a clear reference to The Interview, the upcoming Sony film about an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The message comes after some Sony employees received an email threatening them and their families. "We are the GOP working all over the world. We know nothing about the threatening email received by Sony staffers, but you should wisely judge by yourself why such things are happening and who is responsible for it," today's message says. Both today's message and the email to Sony employees are in broken English.

Over the weekend, the North Korean government denied being behind the devastating hack, but they did describe it as "righteous" and have repeatedly criticized the film. The hack so far has exposed personal and financial information, including social security numbers and salaries, of thousands of Sony employees.

While neither investigators nor the company has identified the source of the hack, an FBI warning sent out describing corporate malware said some of it was in Korean. Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources, that the hack originated in a Thai luxury hotel. Several full-length movies — including the upcoming remake of Annie and the already released Brad Pitt World War II movie Fury — were also released on filesharing services, but not The Interview itself.

Here's the full message.

by GOP

We are the GOP working all over the world.

We know nothing about the threatening email received by Sony staffers, but you should wisely judge by yourself why such things are happening and who is responsible for it.

Message to SONY

We have already given our clear demand to the management team of SONY, however, they have refused to accept.

It seems that you think everything will be well, if you find out the attacker, while no reacting to our demand.

We are sending you our warning again.

Do carry out our demand if you want to escape us.

And, Stop immediately showing the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the War!

You, SONY & FBI, cannot find us.

We are perfect as much.

The destiny of SONY is totally up to the wise reaction & measure of SONY.
