The Sony hackers have invoked 9/11 terror attacks as they threaten all movie theaters that intend to show comedy “The Interview” by Seth Rogen and James Franco. The hackers released a message today with the threats in which they denounced those who seek fun in terror, and threatened to attack the upcoming premiere of “The Interview” in New York.
Before now, the hackers - who call themselves Guardians of Peace - had released some movie files, as well as inside information such as budgets to Sony films, salary information of top executives, employee medical records and social security numbers, as well as intra-employee emails. This dark message makes things more sinister. Read the full message below...
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.
There have been suspicions that North Korea was behind the hacking attack on SONY for sponsoring the “The Interview" movie which is about an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un. North Korea has denied involvement in the hacking but praised the attacks.
