LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - The Sony hackers released a seventh dump of files online Saturday morning and promised a larger "Christmas gift" that will "put Sony Pictures into the worst state."

A spokesman for Sony had no immediate comment.

It's unknown what exactly the stolen documents released on Saturday were but according to Re-Code, they allegedly consisted of files relating to the video site Crackle and former Sony exec Jim Underwood, who now works at Facebook.

The FBI is investigating the massive cyber-attack that began Nov. 24 and continues to wreak havoc at the Culver City-based studio.

On Saturday, the Daily Beast published new emails from Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal in which she ridiculed Leonardo DiCaprio for passing on the Steve Jobs biopic.

"Was this about the deal...or did he just change his mind," wrote producer Mark Gordon. "The latter," responded Pascal. "Horrible behavior," Gordon said, to which Pascal replied, "Actually despicable."

Earlier this week, Pascal apologized for remarks made by her and producer Scott Rudin about President Obama in a series of stolen emails that were published online, remarks that have since been called racist by the likes of Shonda Rhimes.
