The FBI is now claiming it has secret “proof” of North Korean culpability in the Sony Pictures hack. They offered no specifics, beyond hard-coded IP addresses in malicious code, but claimed the decisive proof was “classified.”
The hard-coded IP addresses are hardly conclusive, of course, as malware code is quite often copied wholesale by others when it’s found to have successfully done something, so all it really shows is that the code has some common origins.
Obama Administration officials vowed some form of retaliation against North Korea, though they have so far refused to say what that would be. President Obama declined questions on whether military action was being considered.
Obama did criticize Sony, however, for refusing to release “The Interview,” the movie which North Korea found objectionable. The movie’s full release had been scheduled for Christmas, but now Sony is saying they have “no plans” for any release at all.

What maniacs. Cuba has to be asking itself whether it should continue enforcement of the embargo from its own end.
Since when is an attack on Sony (a corporation) an attack on the United States? Sony needs to up its security. No need for a military response.
Wouldn't this be Japan's problem though?
Hang on! isn't Nkorea's actions in retaliation for our 50 year economic war against them? I suppose I am forgetting that we are allowed to do whatever damage we wish to any country in the world and stand aghast when one of these nations find a means of hitting back. What the hell do we expect?
