A REALLY Bad Week For Sony

A REALLY Bad Week For Sony

In case you haven’t been following the news for the past week or so, Sony Entertainment suffered a major hack. The breach resulted in a huge loss of data including personal data of celebrities and Sony employees. The first suspect emerged… the North Korea government. Rumor has it, they were upset about the upcoming Sony film The Interview starring James Franco and Seth Rogen. Though North Korea denies involvement, the film was leaked to the Internet along with other restricted media. Now, details are being made public that indicate Sony was warned before the hack took place. More recently, the PlayStation Network was taken offline and it is not clear if the acts are connected. It also appears the second wave of stolen data is now being released along with some demands. Wow! This has certainly been a bad week for Sony. Let this just be a reminder to everyone how volatile the Internet can be. Always be careful.
