To dismiss North Korea in this area is dangerous. N. Korea does have military units tasked for cyber operations and has had them for some time now.

Like China would not help them in this. Its not hard for lil kim to hire some goons from China to bring over a few new PC's and go to town hacking whoever.
I think this is all more wag the dog to get everyone's anger off Obama's tail.
"I have yet to see evidence of North Korea behind this," Kyle Wilhoit, a senior threat researcher at Trend Micro, a Japanese security firm, told HuffPost on Monday. Wilhoit argued that just because the FBI sees similarities between the code used in the Sony hack and other North Korean malware doesn't mean it was the same attacker.
Marc Rogers, head of security for the recurring hacking conference Def Con, argued in a blog post Sunday that the FBI's claim that certain Internet protocol (IP) addresses point to North Korea "is perhaps the least convincing of all." IP addresses, Rogers noted, "are often quite nebulous things."
Meanwhile, Kim Zetter wrote in Wired that nation-state attackers "generally don’t chastise their victims for having poor security" or post "stolen data to Pastebin," as occurred in the Sony hack. "These are all hallmarks of hacktivists -- groups like Anonymous and LulzSec," Zetter wrote.
A hacktivist associated with Anonymous told The Huffington Post that "Anonymous doubts that [North Korea] did that Sony Attack." As to who might be behind it, the hacktivist suggested "a troll or the U.S. government. Some people just want to see the world burn " (Here's the reference, for those unfamiliar.)
