Michael Jackson catalogue stolen by hackers
Internet hackers have stolen the entire catalogue of unreleased Michael Jackson songs.
Sony has revealed that the server containing the unreleased music tracks has had a cyber attack and the Jackson goldmine, worth around $250 million, has been grabbed.
Sony paid £250 million for the catalogue featuring about 10 albums worth of unreleased material.
The hack happened almost a year ago after a previous attack on the Sony database where the company was robbed of personal details for 77 million Playstation users.
Two men were arrested in the UK last week over the hacking. They were charged under the computer Misuse Act. They denied all charges.
