Hackers stole unreleased songs of Michael Jackson from Sony!

Last May the service Sony Online Entertainment was attacked by hackers resulting in 24.6 million violated users' accounts. As far reveals the Sony, the company received simultaneously and so internal attack to steal unreleased songs of Michael Jackson!

After the death of "king of pop" in 2009, Sony signed a seven-year contract of $ 250 million to the Michael Jackson Estate to purchase unreleased recordings, including collaborations with the great Freddie Mercury and the Black Eyed Peas.

For the attack were arrested by British James Mark (26 years) and James McCormick (25 years) on charges of illegal access to computers and the Sony breach copyrights. So far, Sony has not announced how many songs were stolen or if it is possible that hackers gained access to previously unreleased tracks and other artists who maintain a contract with record company (see Avril Lavigne, Foo Fighters, etc.).
