Taia Global claims that two independent sources confirmed that the SPE documents shared by the Russian hacker with it were not among those previously leaked by Guardians of Peace on the Internet. That could be because the Guardians of Peace group retained some of the documents it stole and released them now. Or it could mean that the Guardians of Peace or a different group still have access to the network. Furthermore, "Taia Global has received independent confirmation from the author of one of the documents listed that it is indeed authentic," the company said.
Sony Pictures Entertainment did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
