Malware Used in Sony Hack Could Break Through Government Defenses

The FBI admitted that the online attack that crippled Sony Pictures, resulted in theft of confidential information and leak of unreleased movies to the web would have challenged almost any cyber security measures.


The investigation of the attack showed that the used tools were extremely sophisticated. The FBI also said that the attacks were organized and undoubtedly persistent. Security experts had to admit that the malware used in the recent hack would have slipped or probably got past 90% of up-to-date online defenses in private industry. Moreover, it would have challenged even state government. In other words, the experts explain that it’s very hard to prevent sophisticated and well-funded cyber attackers from hacking the company. On the other hand, other security experts criticize Sony Pictures for its poor data security – according to some reports, the company stored login details in unencrypted spreadsheets.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation believes that the skills necessary to carry out such a cyber attack weren’t limited to government-funded rings and that cyber criminals also have the required level of sophistication. The hack took place on 24 November, and the responsibility for it was claimed by a hacking group calling itself Guardians of Peace. North Korea was under suspicion at first, but then a link between the country and Guardians of Peace was muted. Pyongang was suspected because of its reaction to the Sony movie The Interview, which depicts an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un. The country was quick to deny involvement, though a number of security researchers are still convinced that it was a state-sponsored attack.

fusseltier avatarwhy would the government or any sensitive site be connected to the internet anyway?
and i always heard movie studios had their own high speed data network, so why use the internet?
it just doesn't make sense for any of them to be connected to the internet .

No avatarThanks for the news. But is this really about the release of DVD Screeners at this time? Honestly every time yhere is some breach we immediately go for the hackers are brilliant mantra. Shite. those that receive the screeners are mailed DVD's or given access codes to download over the net. Humans then release, not some state funded neo crazy eff ur mother hacking group.

ZerlindaX avatar#4, Good question, why didn't they had their own private high speed data network.
SONY not really all that innocent either. They use to put malware in some of their
software, DVD movies to track customers and make the software inoperable if it
was illegal.

fusseltier avatarwhy would any government have any system on the internet to begin with?
they should have their own private network that can only be accessed by government offices.

Turbowater avatarWouldn't be at all surprised if this was an inside job, by a disgruntled employee rather than hackers or a state.

The leaked information was not just on the internet, it was on their servers. Any device which could access that data and have access to internet is a potential access point.

trialNerror avatarNo matter how tough the security measures are that get put into place, there will ALWAYS be someone/some people out there that see it as a challenge to break it. It will be a never ending war. Even if they had 5643785904378 bit encryption, someone will see that as a game to beat. Eventually they will be able to beat it and again they'll gloat about how insecure the networks are.

cyberjackcyberjack123 avatarvery nicely done ! Most impressive. :¬) just proves no system is ever 100% secure.

MagiKHanD avatarI will try to say my opinion despite my bad english:
First,its clear that the hackers were prepared,they had a precise goal and probably they knew their way around the SONY's security,if not they make it.[Captain Oblivious]

Second,what I consider strange is if those are so sophisticated and good hackers why they specifically targeted SONY?And why in this period of this?A reason can be the movie "The Interview" and/or other movies,as well as that may be a cover.Let's not forgot that those who released the informations were FBI after all,wich is also suspicious because they could have easily hide it,and sometimes for the sake of secret operations and as a cover they invent or manipulate the original story.This is just my opinion.
