Hacking Attack on Sony Pictures Was Alarmingly Sophisticated, FBI Said

The hacking attack on Sony Pictures was so sophisticated and unprecedented that most governments and companies could not have defended against it, Variety reports.

An FBI official gave an alarming assessment of the attack to a Senate Committee on Wednesday.

“The malware that was used would have slipped, probably would have gotten past 90% of the net defenses that are out there today in private industry, and I would challenge to even say government,” Joseph Demarest, assistant director of the FBI’s cyberdivision, told members of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.

Federal officials are investigating whether there is a link to North Korea, where officials had been arguing against the release of the comedy “The Interview.”
