Sony hackers dump more chunks of stolen data, promise another ‘Christmas gift’
The Guardians of Peace, the hackers who plundered Sony Pictures’ servers, has leaked more data swiped from the movie studio – and threatened a bigger document dump in the run up to Christmas in a set of sinister messages.
