North Korea has proposed a joint investigation with the United States into the hack attack against Sony Pictures, according to the state news agency, KCNA.
The offer comes as the FBI formally accused Pyongyang of the attack on Friday and US President Barack Obama promised to “respond proportionally” to the online breach.
North Korea says it can prove it has nothing to do with the cyberattack on Sony, the KCNA news release said.
The statement by Pyongyang also warns of "grave consequences" if Washington refuses to cooperate in the investigation of the attack and continues to accuse North Korea.
Sony’s network was hacked in November, with masses of private data, including employees’ emails, being made public.
The attack was followed by threats against movie theaters that planned to show “The Interview,” a comedy in which the US intelligence seeks to kill North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un. Sony eventually refused to release the film.
Of course they would make this offer. The state would never allow the real perpetrators to be traced back to them.
We have gone through this same cat-and-mouse game with Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Cuba, and most recently Russia with the downed Malaysia plane, and now North Korea hacking Sony.
Of course they did it, so why allow them to try and "prove" anything?
Because despite what the FBI say, it doesn't take some evil nation state to hack a terribly insecure companies network and troll the fuck out of everyone.
It's not like Sony has pissed of the entire gaming / skript kiddie community or anything. If I had to blame anyone I've blame someone from /v/
Or is it possible that this could be yet another American false flag to rally public opinion into yet another war to generate more profits for private contractors and the military industrial complex?
How can NK proof they werent behind the hack? "Our Lord was eating cake while the hack happend, so it cant be us!"
Even tho it's fairly obvionus it wasn't them and some retard at the FBI just found some korean letters and then said it must be Kim Jong Un!
I was talking about a fuckton of money being pumped into it, but the History Channel and such always have programming on technology that the Army uses, and Linux could definitely get some good publicity out of it.
It absolutely does.
Well more like, anonymous did the initial "hack". The Norks took advantage of the situation, and decided to block the movie because they had this ready made situation to their advantage, the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc are doing the same thing, taking advantage of whats happened to further their own agenda.
>Pyongyang also warns of "grave consequences" if Washington refuses to cooperate in the investigation
We don't know any details for the moment being, yes? So far we have only speculations.
I think that USA did it to force another ACTA/SOPA/PIPA/TPP-like shit.
1. Create "cyber terrorists"
2. Claim to fight them
4. Profit from new laws you designed to make you even more powerful.
God, we need to just glass sheet this fucking shithole. Who cares if Seoul takes some shelling during the purification process, hopefully it'll mean less samshit for a couple years. It's time rogue states need to learn that joining the nuclear club doesn't give you immunity, it makes you a massive target if you can't back your shit up. (Hint Iran and Pakistan)
I have a strong suspicion that 4chan is NSA and they're having a lot of fun from people talking about how awesome they are and not even knowing they're here. Think about it, for an organization like NSA anonymous, international imageboard with people talking about various things would be an ideal place.
>"If the North Korean government wants to help, they can admit their culpability and compensate Sony for the damages this attack caused."
What is With America and wanting to punish people over accusations without investigating them? Ferguson, Zimmerman, The LaCross Gang Rapists. all ended up being not guilty, the LaCross 'rapists' were even declared innocent, the first time this has happened in any court case or investigation I've ever heard of, but people still wanted them castrated and demanded they admit what they did.
