Apparently some folks who know about such things believe that Sony wasn’t hacked by the Norks, but by disgruntled Sony employees. I don’t know diddly squat about hacking, but that in at least one way makes sense… if, as has been reported, the hackers got a terabyte of data… getting it out via the internet would take freakin’ forever. Simply plugging a portable hard drive into a networked computer there in the building would take hours and hours.
The Norks would make reasonable patsies here due to “The Interview.”
Hopefully the end result will be improved cybersecurity, whoever was at fault. The notion that China could shut down the US power grid fills me with an uncomfortableness.
