Sony Hackers Backed by Governments, Report Says

The perpetrators of the 2014 cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment were not activists or disgruntled employees, and likely had attacked other targets in China, India, Japan and Taiwan, according to a coalition of security companies that jointly investigated the Sony case for more than a year. The coalition, organized by security analytics company Novetta, concluded in a report that the hackers were government-backed but it stopped short of endorsing the official U.S. view that North Korea was to blame.
