Hackers Steal Unreleased Michael Jackson Back Catalogue

Hackers Steal Unreleased Michael Jackson Back Catalogue

The Sun reports that hackers have broken into Sony Music and stolen the late Michael Jackson's entire back catalogue. The hackers supposedly downloaded more than 50,000 music files worth US $250 million, in the biggest cyber-attack ever on a music company.

Sony has refused to comment on the report but the guardian.co.uk quoted a source as saying: "Everything Sony purchased from the Michael Jackson estate was compromised. It caused them to check their systems and they found the breach. There was a degree of sophistication. Sony identified the weakness and plugged the gap."

Some of the files taken contained unreleased material by Jackson, including duets with Freddie Mercury and Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am. Sony had bought Jackson's entire catalogue from his estate with the intention of releasing ten new albums, including material from studio sessions produced during the making of his biggest albums.
