Just a month after WikiLeaks officially started accepting documents again, it has unloaded two prominent troves of data.
First up, yesterday it dropped a second bucket of Sony documents!

Second, earlier today, the organisation dumped a million diplomatic cables.
RELEASE: The Saudi Cables: Over half a million cables and other documents from the Saudi Foreign Ministry https://t.co/BOv2DKnKRF

So what’s in there? Well it’s hard to say for sure because these are tons of documents that still need to be filtered. WikiLeaks has said that they’re about to release findings from the Saudi docs. It also alleges that the Sony files contain information about alleged bribery investigations.
The timing of the release is auspicious, by the way, as it more or less marks three years since Julian Assange sought asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Good public relations never goes into hiding.
