WikiLeaks is making sure Sony never lives down last year’s hack

Sony is never going to able to live down the massive hack that it allowed to happen last year, and WikiLeaks intends to ensure as much. Earlier today, the organization published thousands of documents and emails that were obtained through the hack and has made them accessible to and easily searchable to anyone who’s interested enough to take a look. 

On Thursday, WikiLeaks published more than 30,000 documents and 170,000 emails from Sony Pictures, obtained from a hack that has been sourced to North Korea in anticipation of the studio’s release of The Interview. The Julian Assange website noted in a press release that “whilst some stories came out at the time, the original archives, which were not searchable, were removed before the public and journalists were able to do more than scratch the surface.” In a move that could trigger another round of embarrassing prying into Sony affairs, WikiLeaks has now published those documents in a searchable format. “This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation,” says Assange. “It is newsworthy and at the centre of a geo-political conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there.”
