The FBI plans to formally accuse North Korea of hacking Sony

49 sec read

The Federal Bureau of Investigation will say later today that North Korea was behind the cyberattack on Sony, according to Reuters and CBS. Reuters reports that investigators will also say there may also be a link to China in the hack, with Chinese servers potentially being involved. It appears to be unknown if this link is because the hack was accomplished in collaboration with China or if Chinese servers were being used to hide the source of the attack. North Korea has been widely seen as the likely culprit in the cyberattack, though it has denied any involvement.

​The Federal Bureau of Investigation will for the first time on Friday officially weigh in on the colossal computer hack suffered by Sony Pictures that in recent days has been elevated to an issue of national security. According to Reuters, the FBI will say that North Korea was responsible for the major breach, but did it by way of Chinese computer networks to cover their tracks. The intrusion into the Hollywood studio’s internal networks last month has since caused a trove of sensitive files, including stolen company emails, records and unreleased films, to surface on the web. Earlier this week, Sony announced that it would be cancelling plans to release “The Interview” next week, a comedy in which North Korea President Kim Jong Un is assassinated, following threats perpetrated by the purported hackers.
