Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has named the North Korean official who allegedly ordered the hacking attack on Sony Pictures, The Daily Beast’s M.L. Nestel reports. Clapper said at a cybersecurity conference in Manhattan that Gen. Kim Youn Chol, his counterpart in North Korea, must have ordered the cyberattack. Clapper said he met Kim during a tense 12-course meal in Pyongyang last year while he was retrieving two American prisoners. “Kim was a four-star general in charge of the Reconnaissance General Bureau. The RGB is the organization responsible with the overseeing attack against Sony.” Clapper added that the two got in a heated exchange that involved both men jabbing fingers into each other’s chests.
