Executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation Trevor Timm said 'while it's hard to tell how legitimate the threat is, if a news organization is attacked in the same manner Sony was, it could put countless sensitive sources in danger of being exposed-or worse.'

Timm added that the FBI bulletin is just the latest example that digital security is now a critical press freedom issue, and why news organizations need to make ubiquitous encryption a high priority.
