Sony employees to meet with FBI over hacked

An email from the head of Sony Entertainment Michael Linton to Sony staffers tells them that the FBI will be on hand in their Hollywood offices this week. The FBI will advise Sony Pictures employees on how to manage the leak of their personal information stolen in a massive hack of Sony computers, the law enforcement agency confirmed late Monday. 

The FBI will visit the Hollywood offices of the film and TV arm of Japanese tech and media conglomerate this week, according to an email sent by studio chief Michael Linton updating employees on the status of the joint investigation of the hack being conducted by the FBI and security firm Mandiant, reported Variety.

"Over the weekend, you should have received my note sharing cyber security expert Kevin Mandia's thoughts on this unprecedented and highly sophisticated attack on us," Linton wrote. "I know it is unsettling that we have been the target of such an attack, but I want to assure you all that we have the recognized experts working on this matter and looking out for our security."

Linton said he would address Sony Pictures employees in a company-wide meeting on Friday.
