Hacked Files Might Reveal Princess Beatrice's Salary

The massive security hack on Sony has affected a wide range of employees and celebrities -- and it has even extended to a member of the British royal family.

Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew, has been working for the entertainment company since January as an intermediate coordinating producer.

According to the hacked files, the princess only makes a little more than $30,000. It's a seemingly low sum for someone of such high ranks -- she is, after all, sixth in line to the British throne.

The 26-year-old royal's private information was among the information hacked by an unknown group that calls itself the "Guardians of Peace." It revealed the salaries of more than 6,000 employees, as well as crucial information about upcoming films and passwords to emails and social media accounts.

North Korea remains the number one suspect. According to Forbes, technical details have linked the socialist country to other attacks.

The motive for the cyber attack? Kim Jong Un, the feared dictator of North Korea, apparently isn't a fan of one of Sony's upcoming movies, "The Interview," in which James Franco and Seth Rogan travel to North Korea to assassinate the dear leader.

Last summer, Pyoungyang called on the U.S. government to ban the flick or be faced with a "merciless and resolute" response.

A spokesman at Buckingham Palace confirmed the princess works in the business sector but declined to comment further when asked if there was concern over the security breach.
