NEW YORK: ‘ TWO FORMER EMPLOYEES SUING SONY PICTURES ‘

#AceWorldNews – NEW YORK:Dec.16 – Two former employees of Sony Pictures Entertainment are suing the company for not preventing hackers from stealing nearly 50,000 social security numbers, salary details and other personal information from current and former workers.

The federal suit alleges that emails and other information leaked by the hackers show that Sony’s information-technology department and its top lawyer believed its security system was vulnerable to attack, but that company did not act on those warnings.

The plaintiffs are asking for compensation for fixing credit reports, monitoring bank account and other costs as well as damages.
