Due to the whole Great Sony Hack of 2014, Sony Pictures’ freshly ousted head Amy Pascal is said to be using four different cell phones. According to a new story in Vanity Fair she is also using various aliases and passwords.
The publication wrote, “Today, Amy Pascal’s e-mails are shorter and safer. For security reasons, she’s using four separate handheld devices, with various names and passwords. But while her e-mails have diminished, her passion for the movies has not. She returned to work on Monday, January 5, the town clamoring to work with her, or for her. Some insiders are cynical about the support, so late in coming.”
The whole saga began for Pascal when she sat down at her desk the morning of November 24, 2014. She saw what all Sony people saw on their screens at the time, a message which read, “We’ve obtained all your internal data including your secrets and top secrets. If you don’t obey us, we’ll release data shown below to the world.”
Apparently Pascal at first thought that it was a joke.
Evan Goldberg recalled how he first heard about the hack saying, “One of the guys working in editorial rushed in and told me to deactivate the Wi-Fi on my cell phone and iPad. I asked, ‘Why?’ And he just said, ‘Sony got hacked! I need to tell everyone else!’ and left to spread the word.”
