More documents stolen in last year's Sony hackathon were recently released at WikiLeaks. This cache has over 276K documents compared to the 30K email that were released this past spring. Another data dump containing a large number of docs purportedly from the Saudi Arabian government was also published.

It is not clear how WikiLeaks got the [Saudi] documents, although in its statement the website referred to a recent electronic attack on the Saudi Foreign Ministry by a group calling itself the Yemen Cyber Army. Hrafnsson declined to elaborate on the statement or say whether the hackers subsequently passed documents on to WikiLeaks.
