Reports Conflict Over Whether North Korea Is Source Of Sony Hack

Sony Pictures will announce that North Korea was the source of the company's recent hack, Re/code reports. The announcement could come "as soon as today."

A representative for Sony told The Hollywood Reporter's Matthew Belloni that Re/code's story is wrong, and that the company will not be making a statement on the attack:

Sony did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post's request for comment.

Sony was hacked last week, and the following five unreleased films were posted online: "Annie," "Still Alice," "Mr. Turner," "To Write Love On Her Arms" and "Fury."

There has been a bit of speculation about North Korea's involvement in the hack since it first occurred, as the country's government has been vocal about its objection to the upcoming Sony film "The Interview." The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, involves a fictional CIA plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Last June, North Korea's ambassador to the U.N., Ja Song Nam, wrote a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon saying that the movie was an "act of war."

As of last week, the FBI had begun investigating the hack.

This story has been updated to include additional details and clarify that the date of the announcement is still unclear, according to Re/code.
