Poor Sony, first #GOP hacks them and hijacks their computers and now in possibly a (un)related move copies of movies have hit torrent sites.
As we reported earlier this week, Sony Pictures was the victim of hacking by a group called #GOP. Now we found out that a handful of movies from the studio made their way to torrent sites. We don’t know if it’s related to the earlier attack as no one has of yet laid claim to the leaks. What is particularly troubling is that three of the films – Annie, Mr. Turner and Still Alice – have yet to hit theaters. These are most likely DVD screeners that would be used for awards shows. Annie has been getting some big time push as it’s due in theaters next month so Sony definitely will feel the burn there.
The fourth flick leaked is Fury which we all know would have hit the torrent sites anyways. They all find themselves on torrent sites, it’s inevitable.
Sony has said they will be pressing charges and proceeding with this as a criminal matter according to a spokesman.
The theft of Sony Pictures Entertainment content is a criminal matter, and we are working closely with law enforcement to address it
What do you think geeks? Do #GOP do it? Did the North Koreans do it over The Interview? Hit up those comments and be heard!
