Mark Cuban: Major hack will happen again

Some of billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban's emails to Sony Pictures were leaked by hackers. He tells Brian Stelter it will happen again.

An excerpt from the conversation:

STELTER: Do you think that will profoundly change in Hollywood as a result of this hack?

CUBAN: Not until the next one. And there will be a next one.

STELTER: It takes one more to change...?

CUBAN: Yes, because everybody will think, 'Look, that's not going to happen to me.' It happens. Right. It can't - that's just the way people think.

And now that the hack has gotten so much notoriety and it's had such an impact, you know, that's a chip for any hacker. That's a 'trophy hack,' and people - hackers are going to want more trophy hacks just to put the trophy on their mantle.

    Well of course it will. Theyve been validated by the actions of those hacked thusfar! You give in once, then they will naturally do it again!
