NEW YORK (AP) – Whistleblower site WikiLeaks has put hundreds of thousands of emails and documents from last year’s Sony hack into a searchable online archive.

The website founded by Julian Assange says that its database includes more than 170,000 emails from Sony Pictures Entertainment and a subsidiary, plus more than 30,000 other documents.

In December, Sony suffered a crippling cyberattack ahead of the release of the movie “The Interview,” set in North Korean. An unknown organization leaked the documents and other damaging information online, but not in an easily searchable database.

In a statement, Assange said the documents show the inner workings of an international company and therefore belongs in the public domain.

Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
