Sony’s shock decision to scrap the Dec. 25 release of its controversial movie “The Interview” will strengthen hackers, experts warn, fueling debilitating cyberattacks on other high-profile firms.

The FBI has connected Pyongyang to the cyberattack, a federal law enforcement source told Fox News Wednesday.
