More than six weeks after hackers attacked Sony Pictures Entertainment, its computer network is still down but the studio has not lost a single day of production on any of its films or television, Lynton told The Associated Press on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015. In a wide-ranging interview Lynton talked about the company’s isolation and the uncertainty that was created by the pre-Thanksgiving attack, which the U.S. government has attributed to North Korea.
