    U.S. investigators have determined hackers working for North Korea were behind the Sony attack and an announcement could come as soon as Thursday, U.S. law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday. Because of the North Korean regime's tight control of the Internet in the reclusive country, U.S. officials believe the hack was ordered directly by the nation's leadership.

    Our very own CA Prop 8 winning lawyer, half of the team, David Boies, also happens to be legal counsel for Sony Pictures. Come on people, the Christian terrorists are pure evil icon_rolleyes.gif

    I wonder if this type of a cyber attack will become common. It really seems like Sony has been brought to its knees, and that's probably more than the hackers could have hoped for.

    I could see the internet changing dramatically if hackings become more prevalent. People have much to hide in the digital world. Everyone at Sony is like, but I don't know how that fisting porn got on there.icon_lol.gif

    Its definitely 'retaliation', but not from the movie, that is just a smoke screen. Imagine what a cyber security 'firm' could do, recruiting actual hackers to build the ultimate defense network. Then 'firms' acquire each other until one 'firm' is left standing, SkyNet

    The Christian terrorist network could also be behind the fall of net neutrality

    How about they pulled it due to utter stupidity! Personally, I'm glad SONY got hacked, I'm glad they pulled the movie, and I hope heads roll at SONY over this. What hair-brained studio executive actually thought it was a good idea (let alone even remotely funny) to produce a film centered around the killing of a head of state? Granted, I remember the movie a few years back about the Assassination of President Bush (and I thought that was a pretty horrendous idea too). Regardless, this was just irresponsible studio management in my opinion...ESPECIALLY being that SONY is owned by the Japanese. Is Hollywood really so devoid of fresh ideas that THIS was what SONY execs deemed a movie for their Christmas release lineup? Are we telling the world that a comedy about assassinating the head of state of North Korea is Christmas fare entertainment in the USA? Seriously?!?!? How embarrassing that the creative types running major studios in Hollywood are so utterly clueless. I would not be surprised if Amy Pascal loses her job over this, and she should.

    I'm against censorship of art, but it's hard not to be cynical about commercial art designed to make money, and in this case I think it reveals how tone deaf Hollywood, and arguably many in the US are, when it comes to other cultures and the obvious backlash that comes with making a piece that will inevitably be consumed as propaganda. I've never heard westerners not use N. Korea as a butt of a joke when taking about its leadership, which is unfortunate, because said leadership does deserve reasoned criticism, due to their position in the international community.

    I'm against censorship as well, however this was not so much about censorship as it was utter stupidity. This was just not a good idea from the get-go, and the fact that the Amy Pascal-led Sony Pictures actually thought it so funny and clever that they put $40 million towards it just shows how out-of-control the whole Hollywood culture is. WHO in their right mind thought the Japanese (who own Sony) would think this was a good idea when they are actually trying to normalize relations with North Korea? We may be the most powerful country in the world, but we still don't need to go pissing off other countries with Nuclear Weapons, even if it is in the name of "Art".

    This is becoming a much bigger story than it started out as. Now we have declared that N. Korea are terrorists and we are going to have to respond as though they declared war....

    I'm thinking Arts and Entertainment is no longer the right place for this discussion.icon_eek.gif

    You guys know how much I hate to agree with Todd on anything, but geez, what the hell was Sony thinking when they greenlighted this idiocy? Really, a "comedy" about assassinating a foreign leader? How did they imagine we'd react if someone made a "comedy" about offing our President?

    Actually, they confirmed this. The US CIA/FBI confirmed that the malwares/hackers were traced back to a network of Bureau 121 (possibly Chinese/Korean hackers), a network of hackers for hire working for N. Korea. The CEO from Sony, Michael Lynton said that all the movie theaters in America told him they would not carry it after they received the threat. Sony Pictures do not control movie theaters. So Sony has to choice but to pull or delay the release of the film. I don't blame Sony Pictures, it's better be safe than sorry. Furthermore, the Hackers have their information. If they release the **Interview, Sony will truly face another nightmare from retaliation.

    **Honestly, I think this is a little bit poor taste. Which execs in their right mind at Sony would green light this project? Mocking a N. Korean leader whom had nuclear power and been wanting to fight with the US/West since forever! At least, if you're going to make a satire plitical comedy, make up some fake name or use a fake country Like **The Dictator. LOL (BTW, that 007 Bond Movie Die Another Day also deals with this idea, that was one cool ass Bond Movie.)

    ** I want to see this movie now, lol, if it releases on Netflix, I'll watch it in my comfortable own room.

    **Another thing I find hilarious/poor taste is the email between Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal, with Rudin calling Angelina Jolie **A Minimally talented Spoil brat!! And Both Rudin and Pascal insulted President Obama being Black and liking **Black movies like DJango or 12 years... Sighhh icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I keep reading the post's title as "Sony pulled out due to fear". Typical coitus interruptus on the part of Sony.

    Perhaps Sony pulled it because it might be a "stinker" of a movie that couldn't survive (or make Sony any money) on it's own merit?

    Perhaps after all the free publicity the movie has received Sony may just decide to release it at a later date?

    Are you just completely unaware of the whole story, because their reason for pulling it had nothing to do with projected earnings?

    It's all over the news.

    LOL if you're following this story, the *Interview costs about $44 million to make. Then with the hacking attack, they lost about $100+ million in damages. LOL, Even Japan pulls out and wants nothing to do with this movie in their country. Oopps, there goes about $150 million bomb down the toilet at Sony. icon_lol.gif

    Sony decides to release it after all, only in limited theaters on Christmas day. Hm, interesting to see any responses from the hackers/N. Korea.
