A new batch of internal Sony Pictures documents has been posted to the Internet by the hackers going by the name Guardians of Peace.

In an e-mail sent to Fusion, GOP linked to a posting on Pastebin titled, "Gift of GOP for 2nd day: Confidential data of Sony Pictures." The document included links to a series of new files including one called bonus.rar, which appears to contain both lists of passwords and three spreadsheets of computers that the hackers claim to have compromised.

The spreadsheets correspond to the operating system of the systems that the hackers claim to have hacked. 245 PCs appear, along with 811 Windows Servers, and 1,686 Unix/Linux machines.


Among the files in the new batch include documents called "Logins and Passwords.xls," "Master_Password_Sheet.xls," "Password File.doc," and "Server Privileged Access.xlsx." Here's a screenshot of just some of the dozens of new files:

The new leak follows a massive data dump from earlier this week, which included apparently complete salary information for the company's employees, thousands of Social Security numbers, and a host of other personal information, including health-related data. Sony, for its part, has acknowledged it was hacked, and employees inside the company describe a chaotic scramble to figure out what's going on.

We're sorting through the new data dump now in an attempt to understand what else they contain.
