    The release of the new documents by WikiLeaks which is available on the WikiLeaks site contains more than 276,000 files of sensitive information data.

    WikiLeaks on Thursday released 276,394 new documents from the hack of Sony Pictures.

    The new documents are available on the WikiLeaks page together with the previously released documents back in April.

    The release of the new documents was announced by WikiLeaks on Twitter, it said “Sony Files Part 2 — 276,394 more docs” and a link to the archive.

    WikiLeaks has said the documents are of public interest because the company is a significant corporation with links to the White House, able to impact laws and policies. It also has connections to the US military-industrial complex.

    Sony Pictures, part of the Japanese-based Sony conglomerate, suffered a massive cyberattack last November which closed down much of its computer network and allowed hackers to access sensitive information.

    Some of the data was released online after hackers threatened the company over the release of the satirical film “The Interview,” which shows a fictional CIA plot to kill North Korea’s leader.

    Although the White House blamed North Korea for the attack, Pyongyang denied responsibility.
