When Sony Pictures was the target of a recent cyber-attack, computer experts were quick to speculate that North Korea was behind the digital infiltration. Things happen quickly in the digital world and now many experts are doubting the original idea that North Korea walked around inside Sony servers in reprisal for the movie, “The Interview,” which imagines an assassination attempt against North Korea’s chubby leader, Kim Jong Un.
North Korean spin-doctors were quick to claim that they did not hack Sony Pictures. Some U.S. cybercrime experts say that the North Korean propagandists might be telling the truth. Pointing to the evidence the Federal Bureau of Investigation has presented to incriminate hackers working for the communist government, the U.S. experts say it is just not enough to use to blame Pyongyang.
