Sony Brings In “Law Enforcement” Over Hackers’ Threatening New Email To Employees

The massive hacking attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment have reached a totally unbelievable and scary phase as multiple media sources are saying that Sony Pictures employees received e-mails from hackers threatening to harm them and their family members.

Said one employee, “It’s really crazy and scary.

It seems like matters for Sony Pictures is getting worse with time. Last month hacking attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment made the studio’s internal corporate systems offline and spewed confidential information onto the Internet. Hackers group that identifies itself as #GOP (Guardians of Peace) claimed responsibility for the hack and apparently stolen reams of internal corporate data as well.
The ongoing hacking nightmare that Sony Pictures has been suffering for over a week now seemingly has gotten very personal. An email allegedly from the Guardians of Peace hackers showed up in the inboxes of a number of Sony employees this afternoon threatening them, their families, and saying the company will “collapse.” It also implied the action was an inside job, adding in broken English that “one beside you can be our member.”
“Please sign your name to object the false (sic) of the company at the email address below, if you don’t want to suffer damage. If you don’t, not only you but your family will be in danger.”

Sony had already been working with the FBI over the hacking that shut down the company’s computer system, revealed executive, employee and talent info and apparently leaked online five films including the still-in-theaters Fury and the yet-to-be-released Annie. In an email to staff Tuesday, Sony bosses Michael Lynton andAmy Pascal, who had details of their financial arrangements with the company made public, called the hacking ““malicious criminal acts.”

Here is the email Sony employees received today:

I am the head of GOP who made you worry.
