The "Guardians of Peace" hacker group threatened attacks against movie theaters that will show "The Interview," but the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hasn't found any credible threats. Police in Los Angeles and New York City said they are taking extra precautions due to the GOP statement.




"We are still analyzing the credibility of these statements, but at this time there is no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States," according to a DHS official.


If nothing else, the hacker group is causing further financial damage to Sony - as some movie theaters already promised to pull the movie.
