The hits just keep on coming for poor Sony...

Sony have not been having a great month, to say the least. On November 24th, Sony Pictures Entertainment's servers were hacked, with reportedly 100 TB of company data including movies, payroll information and social security details being swiped, much of it having already been posted online via torrent websites.
