Still think the Sony hack is amusing?

While people have been too busy either fawning over and expressing ridiculous outrage over comments made by Sony executives in private e-mails, the cyber-terrorists who have hacked Sony just upped the ante.

They are now threatening physical harm to those who dare to go see the Seth Rogen film, "The Interview", when it is released on Christmas Day.

According to "Deadline", here is their threatening missive:

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

This has now graduated to a true national security issue. The NSA is still reportedly trying to track the hackers.

Meanwhile, no word yet on whether Sony is going to release the film, pay for added security in theaters, or respond in a different way entirely.

We cannot let anyone, foreign or domestic, control what we choose to see by instilling fear.

What do the rest of you think?
