Sony Pictures is still suffering from an invasive and crippling hack from November 24th that left the company in shambles. Now it appears that at least 5 current and future Sony Pictures movies have been leaked online and are now available on various file sharing sites.

So far, "Annie," "Mr. Turner," "Still Alice" and "To Write Love on Her Arms" have been spotted. Also in the mix is the still-in-theatres-hit "Fury" which was downloaded by 888,000 unique IP addresses since Nov. 27, according to piracy tracking firm Excipio.

The consequences of the attack have manifested in a few ways.  Beyond the pirated films, internal company computers were infected and presented an image of a skeleton with a message that said, “Hacked by #GOP,” with the group behind it calling itself "Guardians of Peace." Sources told Re/code that Sony Pictures is investigating a link between the hack and the release of "The Interview", a Sony film that depicts a CIA plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
