Uh-oh! Looks like a certain U.S. agency, media outlets & President will need to start doing some apologizing. . .

Security firm says Sony hack might have been an inside job



"We are very confident that this was not an attack master-minded by North Korea and that insiders were key to the implementation of one of the most devastating attacks in history," he told the news outlet.
"Sony was not just hacked, this is a company that was essentially nuked from the inside,” Stammberger added.

"There are certainly North Korean fingerprints on this but when we run all those leads to ground they turn out to be decoys or red herrings," he said.


And one last add-in:



Little is known about Lena, but Norse believes the woman is somehow linked with the hacking group behind the attack, known as the 'Guardians of Peace.' The firm also suspects the woman was a former employee of Sony who worked there for 10 years before leaving in May 2014.



Also note, the info which the fbi holds that “points-the-finger-at-N.Korea” has been- - Classified.

. . . Propaganda complete.

So, was Lena employed at Sony at the same time Philip Reitinger was Global Chief Information Security Officer and Chief Privacy Official? He hasn't been mentioned much...hmmmm.

Very interesting.

Chief information security officers hard to find — and harder to keep



That was Philip Reitinger, previously the Department of Homeland Security's deputy undersecretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate.

He left Sony in 2014 to found his own security consulting business, VisionSpear, in Falls Church, Va.


PHILIP R. REITINGER IS NAMED SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT AND CHIEF INFORMATION SECURITY OFFICER, SONY CORPORATION (from Sony’s website: 9/6/11)



has held key cyber security positions in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Microsoft Corporation, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Thank you






. . . The plot thickens.

Because it is a naughty movie, people will flock to see it. It gives them the sense of living an exciting life. People are so easy to predict their actions. That is how the rich get richer, they understand these kind of things.

Also people will spend all kind of money to fit into groups of people. We have been severely brainwashed in this country.

It is all lies and we will never know the truth. Just like NK losing the internet.......YA right. This entire thing smells like a lie for the simple minded willing to believe it.

It never made sense to me that NK would do something like this. NK always has an endgame when they start throwing their weight around. Usually, looking for food or other concessions. What is NK's endgame here? To stop a movie? They're *always* looking for something in return. Always.

You know how if someone is murdered, you look at the spouse first? Yeah, my first thought is a pissed-off current/former employee. Second thought? Someone did it for the lulz.

Well, NK has a very small network, considering barely 1% of their population has access. Supposedly, they only have 1024 unique IP addresses. They have three trunks going into the country from China. If you hit those routers on those three trunks, wouldn't be that hard to do.

The interesting question would be was Internet service within the country affected? Back in 1990, I remember that here in the US, one particukar router on the backbone would go down, and the east coast would be isolated but still functional.

Although if that were the case they probably could have done something similar that wasn't to the extent of releasing thousands of SSNs, that last I heard there was a class action lawsuit over.
