In late November, hackers breached Sony’s servers and leaked a wide range of data. This included internal documents on Sony employees and actors, as well as copies of unreleased Sony movies such as Annie, Mr. Turner, Still Alice, and To Write Love on Her Arms. This led to led to many theaters refusing to screen Sony’s film, The Interview.

Though large, it actually only ranks as the 33rd largest of the year in terms of number of records breached.
