FBI Confirms North Korea is behind Sony Hack.

It’s official: The FBI is now formally accusing Kim Jong-un of hacking Sony Pictures and says it has the data to prove the despot’s involvement.

“The FBI now has enough information to conclude that the North Korean government is responsible for these actions,” the agency said of the crippling corporate cyberattack in a statement issued Friday.
The harshly worded statement decries the attack’s “destructive” and “coercive” nature, and lays out some of the evidence linking Pyongyang to the hacker group calling itself the Guardians of Peace.
The group has waged a month-long campaign of escalating terror threats and embarrassing data leaks against the studio in a so-far successful bid to obliterate the screwball political comedy “The Interview,” which depicts Kim’s assassination in a CIA plot.
Authorities said the so-called “malware,” or malicious software, used in the Sony hack matches that used in previous North Korea-related cyberattacks.
