Sony lost 11 terra of data to hackers (11.000 GB) of which unreleased films
"According to an approximation, 11,000 GB data was ripped off by the hackers and have warned if their demands are not met all this data would be released in the wild.
A thread on Reddit provided information on what hackers could have stolen from the Sony pictures system. According to the thread, the data might contain passport and visa information for cast and crew working on Sony movies, Outlook inboxes, documents detailing the company’s IT systems plus accounting and research information- but all this is just a small part of this gigantic breach.
and this is not a joke
"By Friday, it was believed that the staff at the company were forced to do their work with pen and paper and that it could take up to three weeks to completely get out of the massive breach http://thehackernews.com/2014/11/sony-pictures-movies-leaked.html
and these are the five unreleased films that you will find on torrents
how do you do that ?
Get 11.000 GB of information past a firewall and security and logs and monitors and people who are supposed to look at those screens without anything or anybody seeing anything
do you understand how MUCH information that is ?
even with a normal trafficvolumemonitor (how much a connection, server or accounts transports normally) you would have seen that something is not right and an alert would have gone off (this is very efficient to leave videostreaming open but blocking downloads of movies)
so we will have new Sony movies and mailboxes of filmstars and pics of them and so on very soon.... except if they pay up (and they hardly have any choice don't they)

it is also astonishing that after the massive lulzsec breaches they weren't capable over the last 2 years to upgrade their security to an acceptable level which means that they didn't make any new big investments, didn't install new monitor rooms and didn't extend their staff and procedures
it also means that they don't have any system of Data leakage prevention
even stranger that it came from North Korea - how the hell do you accept an 11 terrabyte download to North Korea ?
