    U.S. Officials Are Investigating North Korea in Sony Movie Hack

    Sveral U.S. law enforcement agencies are investigating whether North Korea is behind the recent hacking of Sony Pictures' online networks and the illegal dissemination of at least five of the company's films, a senior U.S. official confirmed to NBC News.There has been speculation that the cyberattack could be linked to an upcoming Sony Pictures film called "The Interview," a comedy that features a CIA plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.


    The comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco is scheduled for release December 25. A North Korean official blasted the film as a symbol of the "desperation" of American society in an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph.
    Classified briefings to several U.S. agencies name North Korea among possible suspected perpetrators.
    Attackers using the name Guardians of Peace, or G.O.P., have claimed responsibility for the hack of Sony Pictures' internal network. The attack began November 24, when employees' computers were reportedly plastered with messages bearing the phrase "Hacked by #GOP."

    Sony hack: North Korea's bizarre response - was it them?

    So was it them? No one really knows now, but its kinda of suspicious that it resembles cyber attacks on the ROK, and that its coming right before the release of a new movie basically making fun of Kim Jong-Un. None the less is pretty interesting.

    The important fact is that they were able to do it.

    Meh... if they let Team America World Police slide without incident I don't see why they would get their panties in a knot over this.

    Investigating North Korea... hmmm.

    Assuming we find something to suggest North Korea did it, what are we going to do? Use harsh language?

    If this honestly has to do with The Interview, then NK is even more pathetic than I thought......and they had already set the bar in that.

    They exposed budgets, layoffs, and what actually matters, social security numbers.

    With Obama in the whitehouse harsh language wont even be used.

    Obama is a chump, and this is a way to wage economic cyber warfare from their perspective.

    Put our Cyber Command to work to undermine the entire NK govt computer system. They should do it anyway, even if NK did nothing.

    1.)How do you know that we have not done that in the past? The DPRK never reprots news that is negative about them?
    2.)A massive scansions and embargo against their country which helps casue their economy to be **** is not enought?
    3.)Wanna look at what is right past their border?

    But I forgot: **** OBAMA! PUSSY!
