North Korea unlikely to be behind Sony Pictures attacks
North Korea is most likely not responsible for the cyberattacks against Sony Pictures Entertainment, which saw thousands of sensitive internal documents released on the Web in a high-profile strike, experts said.
The secretive nation has been fingered in part because the same malware was used against Sony that crippled South Korea in March 2013. Those attacks, dubbed “Dark Seoul,” wiped data from banks’ computers, disabled ATMs and crippled websites.
It was also theorized that North Korea was angry about a forthcoming movie in the U.S., “The Interview,” a comedy in which two show business reporters travel to North Korea to interview leader Kim Jong Un.
