The oddly worded missive, said to come from the self-described “Guardians of Peace” group that claimed responsibility for a hack that hit the studio last week, was sent to Sony ’s 6,500 employees around 2 p.m. PST. It indicated the recent disclosure of thousands of Social Security numbers and other personal information was only the first phase of a broader campaign against the studio, its employees and even their families—though specific reasons for the attack weren’t spelled out.
“It’s your false [sic] if you if you think this crisis will be over after some time,” the email said. “All hope will leave you and Sony Pictures will collapse.”
