Quotes from the news wire:
Remember, this isn’t the first time Sony has been brought to its knees by a hacker group. In 2011, hackers took down Sony’s PlayStation Network for 23 days, sony Pictures has royally P.O.’d someone, and if they make it their mission to sink Sony, it’s possible they could do it. A company of their size can withstand this type of hit once, but not three, four, five times in a row.
[The hackers] are obviously capable of doing illegal things and they have been making provocative, spectacular statements so this type of attack would not be inconsistent with their previous behavior, even though it is unlikely, but keep in mind, the precautions should are already being taken may not be visible to the average theater-goer. So people shouldn’t expect to see a SWAT like presence at their local movie theater.
