"New: WikiLeaks Sony search now has thousands of additional Sony emails," the post read along with a link to where the emails can be assessed by the world.

The site reports that the post comes just two weeks after WikiLeaks noted that it had published 30,287 documents and 173,132 emails stemming from the cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

According to the site, "WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange said in an April 16 statement that information was newsworthy, adding, 'It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there.'"

It is believed that the hacking was initiated in North Korea after the studio made the decision to release the comedy The Interview, a film that centers around the attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong- un.

As a result of the film, private email exchanges between top executives and producers became public, ultimately leading to the dismissal of studio chief Amy Pascal.

The April 16 discloser by WikiLeaks revealed that actor Ben Affleck had attempted to hide his slave-owning ancestors from a PBS documentary series Finding Your Roots.
