Actor Sylvester Stallone is one of the star actors to reportedly have had their personal information leaked by a hacker,which  includes Social Security numbers, related to the cyber hacking attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment suspected to have been conducted by North Korea.

The “Rambo” and “Rocky” star was among 47,000 current and former employees to be victimized in the security breach last month, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

Sony confirmed over the weekend that four upcoming movies, due to be released in theaters, were stolen in the cyber attack and leaked on the Internet.

Chief among the suspects is North Korea, angered by the upcoming release of Sony’s comedy “The Interview” which spoofs dictator Kim Jong Un, but the oppressive communist regime are not laughing and have threatened retaliation over the movie.

Cybersecurity experts told The Associated Press they’ve found striking similarities between the code used in the hacks and attacks blamed on North Korea that targeted South Korean companies and government agencies last year.

However, it seems that the attack has included more than just movies

Information on salaries, home addresses and even internal criticism by employees was stolen in the Nov. 24 attack.

The data-security firm Identity Finder LLC analyzed 33,000 Sony Pictures documents leaked online. The firm found records of current and former studio employees dating to 2000.

Even the creators of the movie, Judd Apatow and Australian actress Rebel Wilson’s personal data were stolen and the 3 million dollar salary of studio big, Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, was leaked, revealing she makes as much as studio CEO Michael Lyton.

A hacker group calling itself “Guardians of Peace” claimed responsibility, the FBI is conducting an investigation into the hacking.
