Sony Pictures Entertainment was forced to shut down its worldwide email and computer network on Monday after being targeted by hackers who threatened to reveal the company’s “secrets.”

A message entitled “Hacked by #GOP” with a picture of a skeleton in the background appeared on company computers Monday morning, Deadline.com reported.

“We’ve already warned you, and this is just a beginning,” the message read, going on to state that the hackers have obtained “all your internal data including your secrets and top secrets.” They then threatened to release the data by 11 p.m. if their demands aren’t met, but no demands have apparently been made clear yet.
