North Korea ‘Centrally Involved’ in Sony Hack, U.S. Government Finds

Coming off the heels of the news that Sony was canceling the theatrical release of The Interview, the U.S. government has found that North Korea was behind the Sony hack after all — or at least “centrally involved,” according to the New York Times. Sources wouldn’t talk to the paper on the record, but multiple people in the intelligence community assure the Times that North Korea ordered the cyberattack, and CNN backs them up, saying the U.S. government is currently debating how best to deal with North Korea. Opinions reportedly differ on whether Kim Jong-Un’s regime was aided by any former or current Sony employees. Either way, according to the Times, “intelligence officials have concluded” the cyberattack was “far more destructive than any seen before on American soil.”
