North Korea Attacks U.S. with Cybervandalism

In an interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday, President Obama called North Korea’s hack over the movie The Interview an act of cybervandalism. Obama criticized Sony for pulling the film, prompting Sony’s CEO to explain that theater companies opted not to show the film, and that they forced Sony’s hand (CNN). The North Korean regime has lashed out at the U.S. government, saying that the Obama administration is behind the making of the film (USA Today). The U.S. government has reportedly asked China to help block North Korea’s ability to launch cyber attacks (The Guardian).
