Sony Pictures sat back and did nothing to protect its current and past employees from hackers, who now have access to crucial financial records of more than 15,000 people … according to a new lawsuit.
The class action suit was filed by two ex-employees, on behalf of other Sony workers in their situation … claiming the company was warned by the hackers, Guardians of Peace, on November 24th — but then failed to take any action to protect its records.
The ex-workers — who left Sony years before the hacking — say G.O.P. now have access to 47,000 social security numbers … as well as the birth dates, addresses, salary history, and more for Sony employees.
They are suing for at least 5 years of identity theft protection, credit restoration, and bank monitoring — and they want money for unspecified damages.
