Report: U.S. Points To North Korea In Sony Hack
U.S. officials have positively identified North Korea as being central to the hack on Sony Pictures, which resulted in the unprecedented cancellation of the debut of the film "The Interview" yesterday. According to a report from the New York Times, American officials have determined that North Korea was "centrally involved" in the hacking of Sony Pictures, but are debating whether or not the White House should publicly accuse North Korea of cyberterrorism. Sony was forced to cancel the release of the film--a comedy which featured a far-fetched plot to assassinate Kim Jong Un--after four major theater chains pulled the film on threats of a September 11-style attack on moviegoers who watched the movie.
