Sony: Hack Was ‘”State-Sponsored Criminal Act”

A lawyer for Sony Pictures said Sunday that the North Korean cyberattack represented a "state-sponsored criminal attack" and suggested that the company did not get enough help fighting back. "If the NSA had invaded people's privacy like this, people would have been outraged," the lawyer, David Boies, said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "North Korea does it, and couples it with physical threats, and people sort of sit back for three weeks while Sony fights this issue on its own." The FBI has blamed the North Korean government for the attack, which led Sony to cancel the release of "The Interview," a comedy about a plot to kill the North Korean dictator.
