Hacking: Defines 2014

Although Christmas is around the corner; it is difficult to ignore that the year 2014 has had many hacking events from the most recent Sony hack to the massive Apple  breach which left many celebrities concerned of what little privacy they actually have (let alone they already have to deal with the press and paparazzi’s sleeping in their backyards.)

It is truly shameful how the word Privacy & Security has lost its meaning and lets face it…I doubt security systems will improve anytime soon. Hackers are worse than the flu! My personal wish is to say words that would uplift our spirits and bring a scope of hope; nonetheless, I am skeptical.

Regarding the recent Sony scandal, there are two sides to this story. On one hand, the refusal to release the satire, The Interview is a knock-out to our freedom of expression. In addition, all the countless emails exposed to the public eye – in the end, the hackers won this round. Yet, however, isn’t it distasteful to release a film (although it is a comedy) about an assignment to assassinate a leader of a country? I can assert that no one would air a film that would involve the murder plot of President Obama even if it did star comedy duo like Rogen and Franco (I certainly would not support such film).

Therefore, the Sony scandal is a developing story; however, this leaves a major debate. Was it a correct decision to cancel the release of the film, The Interview?
