WikiLeaks adds 276,394 more leaked Sony docs to its database

WikiLeaks has dumped a second enormous cache of internal documents from Sony into its searchable database. In April of this year, it added internal Sony emails that shined a light on the inner workings of the studio including, the decision making process surrounding projects, employee information, pay discrepancies between male and female actors and racist and derogatory remarks made by Sony executives. This latest addition of 276,394 searchable documents includes calendars, event planning and expense reports. These documents have been available online since the Guardians of Peace breach back in November 2014, WikiLeaks is just making easier to search through the files.

While expense reports are bit less exciting than emails, Sony is no doubt unhappy about the situation. It was investigating legal options when WikiLeaks added the first batch of documents to its database. It also threatened to sue Twitter if it didn’t ban accounts that were tweeting leaked emails steming from the breach. The company then found itself on the receiving end of a class-action suit when two former employees sued it for notadequately protecting employee information.

We have reached out to Sony about today’s news and will update this article if they respond to queries.
