Sony Hack: Sensitive Data on 3,803 Studio Employees Allegedly Released
Fusion reports that it has accessed a spreadsheet listing the names, birth dates and social security numbers of studio employees, including all of the company's top executives
The Sony hack took a turn Tuesday that has nearly the entire studio's workforce caught up in the attack.
Fusion's Kevin Roose reports that he has accessed a spreadsheet listing the names, birth dates, and social security numbers of 3,803 Sony Pictures employees, including all of the company's top executives.
If the information is accurate, it would make the breach one of the largest in history.
The FBI is investigating the hack that has devastated the studio as an unknown assailant continues to disseminate sensitive internal documents. On Monday, 17 of the studio's highest paid employees' salaries were released in a document that also was secured by Fusion.
According to the latest post by Roose, he has sifted through more documents that include a spreadsheet listing the division-by-division Sony Pictures payroll, as well as a break down of costs for raises and other pay changes. The company’s total salaries, as of May, were listed at $454,224,070.
The documents accessed also contain a spreadsheet listing Sony Pictures employees who were fired or laid off in 2014 as part of the company’s reorganization, along with the reasons for their termination.
Sony declined comment.
