The files contain information for more than 6,800 individuals, according to the website.

Sony Pictures was hacked last week and at least five new movies including the upcoming "Annie" were leaked to file sharing sites.

One of the leaked movies "Fury" is currently in theaters but has been downloaded by over 888,000 unique IP addresses as of Nov. 30, making it the second most currently pirated movie.
