N. Korea Denies Sony Attack

North Korea has denied hacking into the computer system at Sony Pictures in retaliation for a film depicting the country's leader - but has praised the attack itself as a "righteous deed."
The attack crippled computers at Sony and led to upcoming films and workers' personal data being leaked online, BBC said in a report. North Korea said its "supporters and sympathizers" may have carried out the hack - but said it was not involved. It has described the film, The Interview, as an "act of terrorism".
The comedy, made by Sony Pictures, features James Franco and Seth Rogen as two journalists who are granted an audience with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. The CIA then enlists the pair to assassinate him. The film is due to be released over Christmas.
