Fallout from the massive Sony data breach is widening, as Sony Pictures Entertainment is warning current and former employees about fraudsters who might be prowling the Internet to take advantage of leaked personal information.
Sony has acknowledged a large amount of data was stolen by hackers last month in a massive cyberattack. Leaked information included everything from film project details to individual employees' personal data including financial account details, health-care information and social security numbers that can't be easily replaced.
Sony is investigating the attack and has said the company will offer employees identity theft protection services, according to Reuters.
Earlier Tuesday, two people who described themselves as former Sony employees have accused Sony Pictures of failing to protect employee data in a class action suit, according to Reuters.
