If you don't want a visit from the feds, don't download leaked Sony docs

News about the Sony Pictures hack is everywhere. After the hacker group Guardians of Peace began posting the stolen information online, journalists, news organizations and lots of other people began downloading the documents to get a better look at them. It seems like everyone is doing it. But could looking at those documents actually get you in legal trouble?

Security expert Dan Tentler has downloaded the documents and provided professional comments to media outlets that are covering the situation. Then, the FBI showed up on his doorstep. Tentler was out of town but his wife says the agents mentioned something about illegal downloads.

We haven't gotten the whole story about what the FBI wanted, but you can bet Sony and the government are keeping an eye on who's downloading those docs.
