On Tuesday, WFP said the voucher program was on again, thanks an unusual campaign it launched on social media to raise $1 contributions from 64 million people around the world. The WFP said it solicited $1.8 million in donations from almost 14,000 people and from private sector donors in 158 countries, as part of a campaign using the hashtag #ADollarALifeline. Other U.N. agencies, such as UNICEF and the U.N.’s humanitarian office, also promoted the campaign through social media. The biggest online contributors through the agency’s address http://www.wfp.org/ForSyrianRefugees were Americans, then Canadians, then Syrians themselves. Aloe Blacc’s song “I Need A Dollar” was the online campaign’s featured soundtrack for the #ADollarALifeline video launched on social media channels.

The studio did have insurance, which will help pay for some of the cleanup, according to an individual close to Sony , but the forensic investigation into who is behind the attack could take six months or longer to complete, experts say. “You basically have to perform a crime scene investigation on every single device at the studio,” explains Joe Loomis , CEO of online security firm CyberSponse. Loomis adds that not only will Sony have to rebuild and strengthen its security system — something that could take months — it also will need to educate its employees to be more attuned to phishing and other threats. “One employee making one mistake can take down an entire company,” he cautions. Joseph Menn , an investigative reporter for the Financial Times and author of the book “Fatal System Error: The Hunt for the New Crime Lords Who Are Bringing Down the Internet,” tells Variety that Sony should have gone to greater lengths to encrypt its most sensitive information. That said, Sony’s not alone. Every other studio has begun to assess its own digital networks and to tap outside consultants, sources tell Variety.
