Sony Hackers Threaten Attack on US News Media
The Sony hackers have set their sights on attacking a news organization, according to a report.
Guardians of Peace, the cyber-terrorists behind the Sony Pictures Entertainment intrusion, has warned that their wake of destruction “may extend to other such organizations in the near future,” according to an FBI and Department of Homeland Security Joint Intelligence Bulletin, reported the New York Post.
The Dec. 24, 2014 bulletin states that its purpose is “to provide information on the late-November 2014 cyber intrusion targeting USPER1 and related threats concerning the planned release of the movie, ‘The Interview.’ Additionally, these threats have extended to USPER2 —a news media organization—and may extend to other such organizations in the near future.”
While reviewing copies of a series of Pastebin messages from Dec. 20, it was uncovered that the Guardians of Peace had mocked CNN by praising the network for its “investigation” into the Sony attacks, said the New York Post.
“The result of investigation by CNN is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes,” the group wrote.
Since the message was released, there has been no mention of other news outlets in any of the GOP postings, Business Insider reports.
