In segment of an interview that aired on ABC’s “World News” on Wednesday, President Barack Obama reacted to the alleged that cyber-attack, which had been confirmed by U.S. officials by ABC News on Sony from North Korea in what appears to be the reaction to the movie “The Interview.”
Obama explained that the cyber-attack was “serious,” but he encouraged people to go to the movies despite the threats on theaters that would have shown the now-canceled Christmas Day release of the film.
“Well, the cyber-attack is very serious,” Obama said. “We’re investigating it. We’re taking it seriously. You know, we’ll be vigilant. If we see something that we think is serious and credible, then we’ll alert the public, but for now, my recommendation would be that people go to the movies.”
