The FBI now says it has enough credible evidence to conclude that North Korea’s government is responsible for the massive hack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.
On top of the PR damage, Sony canceled the Christmas release of the movie after the group calling itself Guardians of Peace threatened attacks against theatergoers. The company’s hand was kind of forced though. Major chains like Regal Cinemas, AMC Entertainment and Cineplex decided to pull the movie in light of a terrorist threat from the hacker group Guardians of Peace.
And while the hackers had previously promised a bigger data dump closer to Christmas, CNN’s Brian Stelter got a hold of an email to Sony supposedly from the hackers.
