Why? I did not attribute it to any organisation or nation state in
particular. This is impossible at this stage and I _do not believe_
much in the North Korean connection either.
This was an attack of a pretty uncommon type, clearly intended to
disrupt Sony's business as long as possible and eventuelly destroy the
company thereafter.
Apparently it was very well planned and this not only on the technical
layer. Most of the damage to Sony was and will be done on the
information layer: when these tons of personal and sensitive data
leaked onto the net are being exploited by common criminals.
As to the quality of the intruders' carefully crafted narrative just
mind the subject of this thread is "confused by the Sony Hack." Four
weeks after this spectacular attack and despite so many different
moves of the attackers it still cannot be attributed. This kind of
quality points as well to a state sponsored organization.
Greetings
Erich
