As the massive scope of the Sony Pictures hack hits headlines, Sony's jumped whole-hog into damage control. Oh, you thought the company would admit that having a folder called "passwords" is a bad idea? Not quite.

In fact, Sony has distributed its first round of cease and desist letters to any journalists discussing the hack. The hackers behind the Sony Pictures hack released all of their results online.

Hackers released private emails, pre-release "screeners" of upcoming movies and payment information for Sony Pictures employees.

While some journalists have been covering the Sony Pictures hack itself, others have taken this data breach as an opportunity to peep in on celebrities' personal lives.

Sony isn't just accusing these telling these celeb-stalker blogs to shut up.
