Sales contracts and other data published by Sony's attackers

Steve Ragan | Dec. 1, 2014
On Saturday, GOP published sales and contract data from Sony Pictures Television, taken after the group compromised the entertainment giant's network last week. The 894MB archive contains thousands of items, covering a period between 2008 and 2012.

On Saturday afternoon, a person claiming to represent GOP hinted that the sales data was only beginning, stating that the group "will release all of the data..." which they claimed was under 100 TB or "tens of [Terabytes]."

However, that claim is open to debate. Under 100TB could mean "about 100TB" or it could mean they plan to post a few thousand files from a backup, averaging a few dozen gigabytes. The author of the message referenced "tens of TBs" but again, that doesn't say much as most of the files in the sales leak are bulky TIFF images.

This isn't the most disastrous data leak in the world. However, it isn't something to dismiss either. The contract records are sensitive internal documents, and while the information within is dated, they serve as proof of the GOP's claims to have accessed internal information.
