sony-pictures-hack-sneThe Sony Pictures hack included a huge store of digital records on 47,000 current and former employees at the company. This also included the Social Security numbers of actor Sylvester Stallone, director Judd Apatow and actress Rebel Wilson, reports The Wall Street Journal.

“The most concerning finding in our analysis is the sheer number of duplicate copies of Social Security numbers that existed inside the files,” Todd Feinman CEO of Identify Finder, told PC Magazine. “In this instance, some SSNs appeared in more than 400 different locations, giving hackers more opportunities to wreak havoc.”

According to experts looking into the Sony Pictures hack, it appears similar to others that have been connected to North Korea. The country has been vocal about its fury concerning the upcoming Seth Rogen comedy The Interview, which is a Sony film that makes fun of  North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, WSJ notes.
