Pu*sies at Sony get pitched Secret Messaging Software after getting on their knees to Hackers

Many Sony Pictures employees probably wished their old emails would just disappear after a cyberattack exposed tens of thousands of messages.

Smartphone app developer Confide is using the hack to pitch big companies — in Hollywood and beyond — on technology designed to let people communicate without a trace.

The company’s year-old app, also called Confide, sends encrypted messages that automatically self-destruct like Snapchat images. Now the company is launching a new version for corporations and telling Hollywood it can keep their secrets from prying eyes.

Confide said it will take out an advertisement in Tuesday’s Los Angeles Times to offer Confide for Business, as the corporate version is called, for free in perpetuity to Sony and other movie studios, television networks and music labels. The ad also addresses celebrities whose personal photos from their Apple iCloud accounts were posted on the Internet a few months ago.

The ad’s timing is auspicious, coming after weeks of embarrassing revelations from Sony Pictures stemming from the attack, first publicized in late November, that revealed thousands of private emails and documents copied from Sony’s computer systems. Publicity around the cyber theft has underscored the vulnerability of email and created an opportunity for firms to pitch alternatives to traditional corporate communications.
