Hacked Files Reveal Celeb Aliases
It's no secret celebs use fake names to blend in with the rest of society in certain cases...but the massive security hack on Sony just blew that cover.
Fusion's Kevin Rose released a leaked list of Hollywood aliases and they couldn't be more vanilla.
According to the files, Tom Hanks goes by "Harry Lauder"and "Johnny Madrid."
Tobey Maguire chose "Neil Deep."
Rob Schneider, being the funny man that he is, goes by "Nazzo Good." (Not so good - Get it?)
Taye Diggs goes by his real name "Scott Diggs."
And Jessica Alba goes by "Cash Money." Who would've thought?
We doubt Hollywood is too happy with Sony. Contact info, including phone numbers for Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks were also leaked along with details of legal claims.
The information was 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.
And while Hollywood royalty isn't safe from exposure, neither is real royalty. Among other internal documents released to the wild is Princess Beatrice's salary. Prince Andrew's daughter has been working for Sony since January as an intermediate coordinating producer. And according to the hacked files, the princess only makes a little more than $30,000 dollars – a seemingly low sum for someone of such high rank-she is afterall, sixth in line to the British throne.
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 Rogen travel to North Korea to assassinate the dear leader.
Last summer, Pyoungyang called on the U.S. government to ban the flick or otherwise they would deal with it with a "merciless and resolute" response.
