Sony Hackers Mock FBI Investigation in Latest Email

The Sony hackers just sent a new email to mock the FBI for their investigation on the hacking scandal.

“The result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes,” the hackers wrote in an email to journalists on early Saturday (December 20) after FBI confirmed North Korea’s involvement in the hack. “We congratulate you success. FBI is the BEST in the world.”

In the email, the hackers also included a Youtube link, which criticized investigators and included writing in a foreign language.

The day before, the hackers sent out an email to celebrate their victory after Sony decided to pull the plug on The Interview‘s Christmas release.

Two social media accounts for The Interview have just been deleted after the film’s release was cancelled by Sony earlier this week.

It is unclear if Sony had made the decision to remove the Facebook and Twitter accounts or if hackers had disabled them themselves.

Before the Facebook account was deleted, the movie had more than 366,000 followers, while the film’s Twitter page (@TheInterview) had 35,100 followers. Currently, the Twitter account says, “@TheInterview hasn’t tweeted yet,” which indicates that the account is inactive.
