It's not an attack on America.
It is an attack on Sony by North Korea because Lil Kimmy doesn't like that movie. The Interview.

In fact, during his end of year address yesterday, President Obama has promised America that he won’t let this crisis go to waste: “I’ve set up an inter-agency cyber security team to figure out everything that we can do at the government level to prevent these kinds of attacks. We’ve been coordinating with the private sector, but a lot more needs to be done. We’re not even close to where we need to be”, says Obama.
“More broadly though, this points to the need for us to work with the international community to start setting up some very clear rules for the road for how the internet and cyber operates. Right now it’s like the wild west. This is why it’s important for Congress to get a bill passed the kind of information sharing we need (between private corporations and central government).”

We should have known; a good old fashion power grab.
