Recently Sony Pictures Entertainment was the target in a series of cyber attacks.
It shut down the company's computers, revealing employee information and email exchanges between Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony and other executives.
Yesterday attorney David Boies sent a strongly worded letter to news organizations asking them not to publish information from the massive data dump.
The letter, sent to a variety of news organizations including the New York Times, referred to the documents as "stolen information" and demanded that the files be ignored, or destroyed
