Sony Pictures Entertainment appears to have known that its servers were vulnerable for at least a year before the recent hacking fiasco, Gawker reports.
In emails dated Feb. 12, 2014, Sony’s vice president of legal compliance, Courtney Schaberg, tells her colleagues that a Sony server may have been hacked. Yet Schaberg goes on to say in the email that she would “recommend against providing any notification to individuals.”
Anonymous hackers have been disseminating Sony’s corporate data since last month, including an embarrassing set of emails between Sony co-chairperson Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin. In the emails, Rudin calls Angelina Jolie a “minimally talented spoiled brat.”
