WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 (Yonhap) — No evidence has emerged yet that points to North Korea as the cultprit in a recent hacking attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment, a senior FBI official was quoted as saying Tuesday.

The North has been suspected of involvement in the Nov. 24 cyber-attack on Sony from the beginning because the communist nation has expressed strong anger at a comedy movie that Sony is set to release later this month.

The film, “The Interview,” tells the story of two American journalists who land an interview with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang but are then recruited by the CIA to kill him.

Pyongyang has condemned the movie as the “most undisguised” sponsoring of terrorism.

The FBI has been investigating the hacking attack.

“There is no attribution to North Korea at this point,” Joe Demarest, assistant director with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s cyber division, said during a cyber-security conference sponsored by Bloomberg Government, according to a Reuters report.

The official did not elaborate.

FBI representatives plan to meet with Sony employees on Wednesday to provide them training in cyber-security practices, according to FBI spokesman Joshua Campbell.

North Korea has officially denied involvement.

The country’s National Defense Commission praised the cyber-attack as a “righteous deed” and the attackers as the “champion of peace.”

It also said that the United States should know there are a great number of supporters and sympathizers with the North all over the world, and the “righteous reaction will get stronger to smash the evil doings.”
