The White House said Thursday it believes “a sophisticated actor” with “malicious intent” was behind the Sony hack. But a White House spokesman said it won’t blame North Korea. Over the past few years, there have been several high-profile cyber crimes against large companies, including Target and Home Depot, that have resulted in little, if no, consequences for the criminals.
A movie could be made about the massive data breach that affected Target last fall. A Hollywood reporter said Sony has bought the rights to a New York Times article about blogger Brian Krebs who exposed the breach.
The cyber reporter who first broke the news about Target’s massive data breach says he now knows how the hackers got in.
