One of the most infamous examples is the 2014 brutal cyberattack on Sony which compromised the tech company’s networks and led to the leak of terabytes of information online.┬áThe FBI blamed North Korea for the attack, believing it was launched in response to Sony’s planned release of The Interview, a film which tells the satirical story of journalists recruited to assassinate Kim Jong Un.
