It seems like Sony just can’t catch a break. On Thursday, WikiLeaks added 276,394 more private documents, emails and financial files, leaked from the embattled tech and media giant, into its database.
The files, which relate mostly to legal and financial documents (among stranger items), are the second massive release of files on the site from last November’s major data breach at Sony Pictures Entertainment by the “Guardians of Peace” hacker group. Fallout from the data leak left Sony’s internal infrastructure crippled and many company executives scrambling to atone for embarrassing comments made in the thousands of private emails that were leaked.
The dump “Sony Files Part 2,” appears to coincide with a major social media push from WikiLeaks regarding the three-year anniversary of its founder Julian Assange’s stay at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he is remaining to avoid extradition.
