1. SONY HACK – NORTH KOREA
Laying blame: It could be today when the Obama administration officially points the finger at North Korea for hacking Sony Pictures. Investigators say it was a sophisticated operation with hackers stealing the computer credentials of a system administrator to get access to Sony's computer system. As we now know, they pretty much had access to everything. The question is: How will the U.S. respond? There are high-level meetings taking place at the White House to decide exactly that. Officials say they haven't yet decided how to respond to the attack.
