WikiLeaks adds thousands of hacked Sony emails

WikiLeaks has added "thousands" more hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment emails to its searchable database.

WikiLeaks made the announcement Thursday in a posting on its Twitter account.

The move came two weeks after WikiLeaks disclosed that it had published 30,287 documents and 173,132 emails stemming from last winter's cyber-attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The hack was reportedly initiated by North Korea in response to the studio's decision to release the comedy "The Interview," centering on an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. As a result, embarrassing correspondence between top executives and producers became public and helped lead to the ouster of studio chief Amy Pascal and her being replaced by TriStar chief Tom Rothman.
