The hackers behind the attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment have released the private details of 47,000 Sony employees, former employees, and freelancers — including a few Hollywood stars. The information includes Social Security numbers, contracts and taxpayer-identification numbers.
Celebrities whose details have been revealed include actors Sylvester Stallone, Judd Apatow and Rebel Wilson, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Data like the salaries and home addresses of people who left the company as far back as 2000 has also been posted, according to an analysis of 33,000 leaked documents by data-security company Identity Finder.
A group called Guardians of Peace has claimed responsibility for the cyber attack. The group may be affiliated with North Korea, which has expressed outrage at Sony Pictures’ upcoming release The Interview, which satirizes the country’s dictator Kim Jong Un.
The film’s budget, along with the salaries of stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, were leaked earlier this week.
