Sony?s Shame: Wikileaks releases searchable database of leaked Sony content

By on

A great example of how nothing on the internet ever gets lost, the months-old Sony leak that was supposedly orchestrated by North Korea gets a new update. Wikileaks has just compiled all the leaked information into a? searchable database that anyone can peruse.

Comprehensive and indexed

In the database, Wikileaks has organized all the information about Sony executives, projects, IPOs and other information in a completely searchable and indexed format.

According to statement from WikiLeaks, the emails and content released last year in a massive hack showed that Sony is not just an entertainment company with hands in electronics, movies, gaming and TV. The leaks also contained emails with about 100 US government addresses, which means that Sony has ties to the White House and other government branches.

Heavier than The Interview

While most of the internet and the entertainment business went crazy over the threat of The Interview not getting shown, the more salient details of the released information went unnoticed due to the sheer size of the leak. Who had time to go through all that information and index it anyway?

But in line with Wikileaks? self-mandate, they collated and organized all the information, highlighting the most important bits in their statement on the website:

The connections and alignments between Sony Pictures Entertainment and the US Democratic Party are detailed through the archives, including SPE’s CEO Lynton attending dinner with President Obama at Martha’s Vineyard and Sony employees being part of fundraising dinners for the Democratic Party. There are emails setting up a collective within the corporation to get around the 5,000 USD limit on corporate campaign donations to give 50,000 USD to get the Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo elected as “Thanks to Governor Cuomo, we have a great production incentive environment in NY and a strong piracy advocate that?s actually done more than talk about our problems.”

Users and netizens can go to the Wikileaks website now to search through the other Sony emails, documents and content at their own leisure.
