Default FBI warns US businesses of 'destructive' malware

I got a popup today on my computer from Norton about this issue.

The FBI warned U.*. businesses that hackers have used malicious software to launch destructive attacks in the United States, following a devastating cyberattack last week at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Yeah man, I heard about that, I have not read the whole story, but I heard it may have been by North Korea, as they were mad that the movie with Seth Rogen, The Interview.

"They promised "merciless" retaliation if a forthcoming Hollywood movie about killing Kim Jong-un is released."

They will do anything for attention. I say we leave SK, and let them hash it out between themselves.
