The whistleblower website first set up its Sony hack database in mid-April.

WikiLeaks released 276,394 additional Sony hack documents to its searchable database on Thursday.

The site announced the release of a new batch of emails and other documents tied to the December hack of the studio's system on its Twitter account.

WikiLeaks, the whistleblower website set up by Julian Assange, first established its Sony Hack database in mid-April, releasing more than 30,000 documents.

Following the April leak, Sony released a statement condemning it: “The cyberattack on Sony Pictures was a malicious criminal act, and we strongly condemn the indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information on WikiLeaks," Sony said in a statement. "The attackers used the dissemination of stolen information to try to harm SPE and its employees, and now WikiLeaks regrettably is assisting them in that effort. We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks’ assertion that this material belongs in the public domain and will continue to fight for the safety, security and privacy of our company and its more than 6,000 employees.”

Sony declined comment on the new wave of leaked documents.
