By this time, you probably heard of the cybercrime that was done to none other than Sony Pictures Entertainment. If you haven't, then you should know that Monday last week, a group of hackers calling themselves the "Guardians of Peace" and also goes by just simply "GOP" has launched an attack on the studio. They threatened the company's employees after being able to obtain personal and sensitive information about the victims. These details included complete names and addresses, as well as Social Security Numbers.

The woes of Sony did not stop at that though. According to Jezebel, GOP has once again breached the security of the company. This time, the group of hackers has stolen the information of celebrities and other details related to the world of Hollywood. To make matters worse, the cybercriminals have also released tidbits of the details they have unlawfully obtained.

For example, one of Jessica Alba's aliases is "Cash Money." It was also revealed that Adam Sandler was hated by the employees of Sony Pictures Entertainment. Seth Rogen is supposedly making a lot more than his good friend James Franco in terms of money. A multitude of other aliases used by celebrities were also made known to the public. Just to name a few, Sarah Michelle Gellar goes by the name "Neely O'Hara," Tobey Maguire by the name "Neil Deep," Natalie Portman by the name "Lauren Brown," Rob Schneider by the name "Nazzo Good," and Jude Law by the name "Mr. Perry."

Aside from this list of celebrity aliases, the scripts of several Sony films have also been made public by the Guardians of Peace, according to Fusion. Comprehensive data of the finances of the studio has also been stolen by the group. And to much of Brad Pitt's horror, his personal phone number has also been obtained and released by the cybercriminals.
