Investigators Consider North Korea Link in Sony Hacking Attack

Unreleased copies of five movies were leaked online.

Copies of five of Sony’s movies -- “Annie,” “Fury,” “Still Alice,” “Mr. Turner” and “To Write Love on Her Arms” -- appeared online days after the attack despite note being out on home video or, in most cases, even in theaters.

It was unclear if the hacking and piracy were linked.

Sony told ABC News that the theft of its content “is a criminal matter and we are working closely with law enforcement to address it.”

Stephen Galloway, executive features editor with Hollywood Reporter, said the financial ramifications of the movie leaks could be steep.

“That can do hundreds of millions of [dollars in] damage if it continues,” Galloway said.

Sony is reportedly looking into whether North Korea is to blame.

The North Korean government-controlled news company, Uriminzokkiri, released a statement Friday calling the upcoming movie an “evil act of provocation” that deserved stern punishment.

Rogan discussed the movie earlier this year in an interview with ABC News.

“It’s a tough subject matter, I think, but I think the best comedies do deal with what on the surface might be a tough subject to make light of,” he said.
