Sony Hack Obama Press Conference

North Korea hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s deep investigation into the cyber attack has determined as much, and the U.S. government confirmed it publicly on Friday morning. You can read the FBI’s full statement right here. North Korea’s attack on Sony Pictures is believed to be a direct result of the studio’s upcoming movie “The Interview,” which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as two journalists who conspire to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

The theatrical release of “The Interview” has now been cancelled as Sony continues to comply with several of the North Korean hackers’ demands in an attempt to prevent them from leaking additional documents that were stolen in the hack.

Now, President Barack Obama is holding a news conference to address the Sony hack and the FBI’s findings.
