Sony CEO: We were the victim of a vicious and malicious hack

Sony CEO: We were the victim of a vicious and malicious hack: LAS VEGAS — Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai noted his dismay at being the target of a notorious hack that sparked an international controversy between the US and North Korea.

The cyberattack, revealed in November, exposed a trove of e-mails and documents that detail the inner workings of Sony’s studio business, including embarrassing emails that prompted public apologies by Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairwoman Amy Pascal. The US believes North Korea was responsible for the attack, which was provoked by the controversial comedy “The Interview.” Seth Rogen and James Franco star as journalists who are asked to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
