Later last week, Sony Pictures firm got hacked and the hackers stole very sensitive data as an objection on Sony's latest movie "The Interview" that makes fun of the North Korean dictator Kim. Yesterday, the U.S. Pres. Obama said FBI confirmed that North Korea was behind the Hacking attack and the 9/11 attack threats made if Sony released the movie.
North Korea has ratcheted the absurdity level of the Sony hack up a notch by again pleading its innocence and even offering to help find the real perpetrators. North Korea is so anxious to help in the investigation that it used some particularly bellicose language in warning the US of "grave consequences" if it doesn't undertake a joint probe. While on the one hand denying culpability, the rogue nation's propaganda arm KCNA nevertheless went on in great detail about how the Interview "defamed its dignity," and said it would retaliate if the US refuses to work with it.
For now, the movie is still on hold, a decision that was criticized by President Obama and others. However, Sony said yesterday that it hadn't been cowed and may still release the Seth Rogan/James Franco film.
