Experts reveal that a studio insider named ‘Lena’ may be responsible.
The FBI just last week confirmed what many Americans already assumed to be a forgone conclusion when they revealed there was conclusive evidence that North Korea’s government was behind the hacking of Sony, an attack the government bureau said was carried out as a way ‘to inflict significant harm on a U.S. business and suppress the right of American citizens to express themselves.’
Then, in a press conference on Friday, President Obama not only attacked North Korea and leader Kim Jong-un for their attempts to ‘intimidate’ Americans through their actions, but went so far as to warn the country that America would retaliate in response their actions.
Almost immediately the North Korean leader issued a statement denying involvement and demanding an apology from the United States for their ‘evil doings.’
And while that apology is probably never coming, it seems that Kim Jong-un may be right, at least according to numerous cybersecurity experts and hackers who have come forward to not only point out the flaws in the FBI’s investigation, but also possibly reveal the identity of the culprit.
The problems with the FBI’s investigation are best explained by Marc Rogers in an article he wrote for The Daily Beast.
Stammberger, whose company decided to carry out their own independent investigation, told CBS News; ‘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.’
That’s not all either, as he says their research seems to be pointing them towards a woman named Lena who even claims be a member of Guardians of Peace.
‘This woman was in precisely the right position and had the deep technical background she would need to locate the specific servers that were compromised,’ revealed Stammberger.
