Sony Hack: Investigators Say It Was an Inside Job, Not North Korea Responsible for the Leaks

New evidence is popping up that suggests that the Sony Pictures hacking was not the work of North Korea, but of several individuals including one ex Sony employee.

Security firm Norse, who was investigating the major hack independently, said that one former Sony employee, “Lena,” had “extensive knowledge of the company’s network and operations” and used to work in a technical role. The company has identified six individuals involved, two in the US and others from Canada, Singapore and Thailand, via the Daily Caller.

The FBI previously said that North Korea was responsible for the hack.

“They’re the investigators,” Senior vice president at Norse Kurt Stammberger said about the FBI. “We’re going to show them our data and where it points us. As far as whether it is proof that would stand up in a court of law? That’s not our job to determine, it is theirs.”
