The FBI says it still cannot figure out who was the mastermind of last week's devastating cyber attack on Sony Pictures. Speaking at a cyber security conference in Washington on Tuesday, senior FBI official Joe Demarest said there is nothing linking North Korea to the attack that led to the theft of thousands of files, leaked unreleased movies and revealed confidential information about the company's staff.
Analysts say the remark suggests the FBI may be broadening its inquiry. There had been speculation North Korea was behind the attack as the regime was incensed by a Sony Pictures comedy called "The Interview" which depicts an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
