The organization which infiltrated Sony Pictures Entertainment and stole almost 10 TB of Data has now threatened media organization.
Known as the Guardians of Peace (GOP), the group has proved to be a great headache for the Sony, looks inspired by the comedy movie that involves as assassination attempt against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un named “The Interview”.
The FBI’s Bulletin on Dec says that “threat by GOP against the news media organization may extend further to other organizations in near future”
In the Bulletin, FBI refers Sony as “USPER1” and the other news organization as “USPER2”. The GOP has taunted FBI and USPER2 in their message for their poor quality of investigation and implied additional threat.
News outlet Fox News said it was able to confirm with the FBI that the bulletin is real, however it’s being stressed that it doesn’t mean there’s any specific evidence of a threat to a news organization.
The official said “As part of our ongoing public-private partnerships, the FBI and DHS routinely share information with the private sector and law enforcement community, The FBI and DHS are not aware of any specific credible information indicating a threat to entertainment or news organizations, however, out of an abundance of caution, we will continue to disseminate relevant information observed during the course of our investigations.”
The FBI has already blamed North Korea for the Cyber Attacks on Sony in December 2014 but North Korea say that they had nothing to do with this incident.
