President Obama says in an interview to be broadcast Sunday morning that he did not think the Sony Pictures hack was not an act of war by North Korea.

“I think it was an act of cyber vandalism that was very costly, very expensive,” Obama said on CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley,” according to a transcript. “We take it very seriously. We will respond proportionately, as I said.”
Obama said he was “sympathetic to the fact” that Sony has business considerations to make in their decision to cancel the release of “The Interview,” a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, in theaters on Christmas Day following terror threats.
