Lenovo gives us an unseen look inside the massive hack of Sony Pictures, which took place back in 2014.

The Fallout is a real-life story about the devastating effects that a hack can have on a company. Sony were targeted by a group called Guardians Of Peace who broke into their servers and database. They collected thousands of emails as well as a number of scripts for upcoming films. The information they leaked jeopardised entire film projects. Worse still, some of the sensitive information in a handful of emails even resulted in some high-profile resignations at Sony.
