White House Addresses Sony Hack

The White House is treating the massive hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment as a “serious national security matter” and is currently devising a “proportional response” to the cyberattack, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday.

Earnest also noted there have been a number of daily meetings at the White House about the hack, and that there are “a range of options that are under consideration right now” for a response. And on Thursday, President Obama signed a bill authorizing stricter sanctions against Russia, but insisting he has no intention to immediately use the authority it grants.
