North Korea calls Sony cyberattack "a righteous deed"

The hackers taking responsibility for the sophisticated cyber attack against Sony Pictures is making a demand - it wants the company to stop the movie, "The Interview," a comedy about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

North Korea is strongly suspected of being behind the hack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The Sony mega-hack: What you need to know

The cyber attack revealed a trove of sensitive information, including:

  • Entire films and movie scripts
  • Salaries of 6,000 employees
  • Internal memos and emails
  • More than 47,000 Social Security numbers of movie stars, employees, and contractors

Employees were threatened, receiving email messages that read, "your family will be in danger." Sony Pictures is calling it a terrorist attack.

North Korea denies responsibility, but calls the hack "a righteous deed." The hackers taking responsibility warned the company to stop showing the movie of "terrorism."

Suze Orman on Microsoft CEO's gender gaffe: Good Karma comes from "good actions," not by being silent

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is under fire for comments he made about women in the workplace. During an event for women in computing, he offered up advice to women who are afraid to ask for a raise.

"That ... might be one of the additional superpowers, that quite frankly, women who don't ask for raises have," he said. "Because that's good karma. It will come back."

Erin Burnett speaks with Suze Orman, best-selling author of "Women and Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny" about her take on the CEO's comments.
