Assange Argued that the Emails Belonged Online Because they Showed how an International Company Functioned
Wikileaks has dealt the latest blow to Sony by uploading hundreds of thousands of emails and documents stolen in last year’s cyberattack into a searchable online database. While infamous founder Julian Assange said in a statement that the emails had a public interest, the vast majority deal with personal matters.
Among the documents are deeply personal emails like dealing with the death of a parent or a child’s sickness. The cyberattack has already cost Sony an estimated $100 million as well as creating numerous scandals originating from the controversial opinions of some of the most important people at the company.
