Well:
Quote:Bowing to pressure from hackers who threatened theatergoers with a terrorist attack, Sony halts release of the comedy focused on North Korea as the US says it has evidence North Korea was behind the attack

Pretty bold move!

I don't think it was the right move politically (caving in to blackmail for the world to see) but from Sony's point of view, if they hadn't pulled it and there actually was an attack, their business would probably be ruined, not to mention the potential loss of life. It's unfortunate that companies of that size don't put more emphasis on their security, especially since that particular family of malware had been used in different attacks before and was known by security companies.

Something seems fishy. Seems like a false-flag attack in order to invade North Korea.

This seems doubtful. The US wouldn't invade for something like this. Plus even if it did, it would damage relationships with China which is not what US wants (due to the large amount of outsourcing and resources that come from there)

Theres currently some movement over the internet to release it online. George Clooney and some other A list celebrities are giving it a go signal.

Well first of all, Sony is a Japan based company with Japanese decision makers. And we shouldn't forget that Japan and North Korea have very vulnerable connection. A few years ago NK kidnapped a few of Japan citizens. I think this was the right move.
Latest Thanks - View all

It seems to be a right move. Though everyone on the internet is calling them cowards.

I really wanted to see this movie actually, could be as fun as a Dictator movie which was made by Sacha Baron Cohen :) Looking forward for seeing it online.
