Obama: Sony Hack Not an Act of War

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley,” President Barack Obama said he did not think the Sony hack attack was an act of war by North Korea.

Obama said, “No, I don’t think it was an act of war. I think it was an act of cyber vandalism that was very costly, very expensive. We take it very seriously. We will respond proportionately as I said. But, you know we’re going to be in an environment in this new world where so much is digitized that both state and non-state actors are going to have capacity to disrupt our lives in all sort of ways. We have to guard against that.”
