The Truth About The Sony Hack

Recently a group of hackers breached the Sony network and started leaking sensitive information about the company. According to the FBI and the media, the state of North Korea carried out the attack in an attempt to suppress the release of an upcoming film called The Interview. The film is starring Seth Rogen and James Franco and features a controversial scene in which the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un gets assassinated. Sony ultimately decided to pull the release the film, a move which President Obama condemned. What is the truth about the Sony hack?
