The Guardians of Peace released more information stolen from Sony, and promised a large "Christmas gift" of additional data taken in a breach Sony suffered that started late last month. The leaked content reportedly contained more email correspondence and information related to Crackle, the online video website.




Here is part of the post from hackers (via Pastebin): "We are preparing for you a Christmas gift. The gift will be larger quantities of data. And it will be more interesting. The gift will surely give you much more pleasure and put Sony Pictures into the worst state."


The cybercriminals behind the Sony breach have released seven waves of stolen data and movies to the Internet, and will continue to do so. The FBI and cybersecurity companies are helping Sony clean up the mess, but the damage has clearly already been done.
