|A cybersecurity expert says that if North Korea was behind the crippling hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment, as U.S. officials have suggested, it probably had help. Scott Borg, director and chief economist of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, an independent research institute that assesses the consequences of cyberattacks, says it's "by no means a certainty" that the Pyongyang government was responsible for the November hack. The attack exposed Sony corporate secrets, sensitive emails and private employee information. Sony on Wednesday also canceled the theatrical release of "The Interview," a comedy that revolves around a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
