Last month, a group of activists calling themselves Guardians of Peace infiltrated the Sony database and leaked whole movies, celebrities' salaries, and stars' personal information on the Internet, threatening more hacks unless studio executives scrapped plans to release the Seth Rogen film, about two Americans who set out on a mission to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
