Hackers post emails from Sony Pictures France online

By Erica Ogg

The hackers claiming responsibility are a Lebanese student who goes by the handle Idahc, and a French friend of his who goes by the name Auth3ntiq. The two say they copied 177,172 emails from the entertainment company's site, but posted only 70 of them on the code-sharing site Pastebin. They say they will not be posting all of the emails they found.
Jim Kennedy, Sony Pictures's executive vice president of communications, said in a statement: "We are currently investigating this claim."
The brief Pastebin posting says the pair managed to lift the email addresses through an SQL injection.
