The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was quoted on Friday saying that signs are leading to the North Korean regime as the source of the damaging cyberattack

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, was quoted on Friday saying that signs are leading to the North Korean regime as the source of the damaging cyberattack on the Sony Pictures studio. 

"I would argue as a former FBI agent that, when a nation state says that 'This group ... did this on behalf of the North Korean people ... and we appreciate it,' as we would say in the FBI: that is a clue," Rogers said, according to The Los Angeles Times.

North Korea has officially denied being the source of the attack, which was perpetrated by a group that calls itself Guardians of Peace beginning on Nov. 24. The FBI investigation into the attack is ongoing and Sony has not named the source of the attack.
