FBI Busted Falsely Blaming North Korea for Sony Hack

I hate North Korea’s leaders … They’re not only clowns sporting bad haircuts and weird clothes, but they live in luxury while the population literally starves.

But the FBI’s official assertion that North Korea carried out the attack in retaliation for Sony’s releasing the movie “The Interview” is B.S.

Here’s a sample of top cybersecurity experts who say that North Korea was not behind the hacking attack of Sony:

  • One of the world's leading cyber intelligence firms, Norse (and see this)
  • Renowned hacker, DEFCON organizer, and CloudFlare researcher Marc Rogers
  • John Dickson, a former air force intelligence officer who is now a partner in the cybersecurity firm Denim Group
  • Princeton Professor of Computer Science Ed Felten
  • Former federal prosecutor Mark Rasch of Rasch Technology and Cyberlaw
  • Kim Zetter, an award-winning, senior staff reporter at Wired covering cybercrime, privacy, and security
  • Former Lulzsec hacker turned government informant Sabu
  • Security researcher Grugq

Just because the FBI blames someone doesn't mean they did it.  And see this.

Postscript: Robert Barsocchini argues that the U.S. is to blame for North Korea’s rotten leaders.  And North Korea is more popular with the U.S. public than our own Congress.    Regardless, I still hate North Korea’s leaders for treating their people so poorly.
