The Sony Hackers Just Pranked The FBI

Kim Jong Un

The hacker group who broke into the computer network of Sony Pictures and managed to halt the release of ‘The Interview’ have issued a new message, this time mocking the FBI. 

The Daily Beast reports that Guardians of Peace published a new message on Pastebin on Saturday. Here’s that message in its entirety:

By GOP

The result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes.

We congratulate you success.

FBI is the BEST in the world.

You will find the gift for FBI at the following address.

Enjoy!

The link in the message leads to a Japanese prank video which repeats the phrase “You are an idiot” to the tune of throbbing house music. It seems that Guardians of Peace are mocking the FBI’s “excellent” investigation, which led to the US government declaring on Friday that North Korea was behind the cyber-attack.

The “You are an idiot” video could be an attempt to criticize the FBI for blaming the Sony hack on North Korea. Some are still unconvinced by the US government’s claim that the software used in the Sony hack was similar to programs used in the past by attacks linked to North Korea.

US authorities found the evidence to be overwhleming enough to call out North Korea directly, and President Obama has vowed to respond to the attack.

police officer shooting

Two New York police officers died after a solo-shooter ambushed their patrol car earlier today.

The officers were near Myrtle Avenue and Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant when the 28-year-old gunman approached their car.

At least one of the officers was shot in the head, police said.

After firing on the officers, the man ran into a nearby subway station before shooting himself, an NYPD official said. 

The gunman posted an angry, threatening message about the police on his social media account before ambushing the police officers.

The last NYPD officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty was Peter Figoski in 2011.
