AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – Dec.06 – The FBI is investigating threatening emails sent to some Sony Pictures employees in the wake of the cyber-attack last week that leaked celebrity salaries on-line.
‘ Emails Hackred and Celebrity Salaries Leaked ‘
The agency said in a statement it was trying to identify the person or group responsible.
According to Variety, the email was written in broken English and claimed to be from the head of the GOP (Guardians of Peace), the same group that took credit for last week’s attack. “Removing Sony Pictures on earth is a very tiny work for our group which is a worldwide organization.
And what we have done so far is only a small part of our further plan,” the email read. It also demands: “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.”
The hack against Sony Pictures appeared to enter new territory on Friday when employees reportedly received messages threatening them and their families.
The message, reported by Variety, warned that “not only you but your family will be in danger.”
