I am a leader of hacker group GOP. It is easy for us to erase Sony Pictures from the world. And what we have done so far is only a part of the profound plan as a whole. If you think that the crisis has passed, that is a mistake. All hope was broken. Sony Pictures will collapse. It is Sony Pictures that invited this situation. Sony Pictures must take responsibility on its own. Sony Pictures sticks to what no one wants from the beginning. It is foolish if you think that Sony Pictures can stop us. Sony Pictures is making a wasteful effort. It is on our side that you are left with you. (Of course) If you think that you do not want to suffer the damage, you should sign Sony Pictures's mistake to the underlying email address. If you do not sign it, your family as well as you will be in danger.
In addition, GOP is just a part of the data stolen by hacking such as undisclosed movie and so forth, data which I have leaked so far has stated that the total amount of stolen data is about 100 TB.
