The Federal Bureau of Investigation will for the first time on Friday officially weigh in on the colossal computer hack suffered by Sony Pictures that in recent days has been elevated to an issue of national security.
According to Reuters, the FBI will say that North Korea was responsible for the major breach, but did it by way of Chinese computer networks to cover their tracks.
The intrusion into the Hollywood studio’s internal networks last month has since caused a trove of sensitive files, including stolen company emails, records and unreleased films, to surface on the web.
Earlier this week, Sony announced that it would be cancelling plans to release “The Interview” next week, a comedy in which North Korea President Kim Jong Un is assassinated, following threats perpetrated by the purported hackers.
