North Korea Spends Millions Hacking But Starve It's People

From the Daily Telegraph: The Hollywood studio that made the James Bond and Spider-Man films has abandoned film shoots after hackers paralysed its computer network, and leaked four films and thousands of documents.
Agencies filming for Sony Pictures have cancelled shoots because the problems have left it unable to process payments, according to The Times.
The attack by Guardians of Peace, a hacking collective suspected of having links with North Korea, has taken most of Sony Pictures’ computers offline. North Korea has been linked to the hack because Sony’s forthcoming film The Interview involves a CIA plot to kill Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader.
Joseph Demarest, the assistant director of the FBI’s cyber-division, told a US Senate hearing that methods used by the hackers would have breached the defences of nine out of ten companies.
Security researchers said that the attack would cost Sony Pictures £64 million to put right.
It's interesting that North Korea is spending probably millions of dollars hacking and training hackers but yet, let many of their citizens starve.
But then, when you have a leader that is an ego maniac and thinks of himself as a god, well, what do you expect?
But then, us Americans are used to a certain leader who is an ego maniac and thinks of himself as a god.
As an aside, it's kind of funny that the Hollywood liberals are being exposed as a bunch of hypocrites and idiots.
