Security researchers have identified “strong links” between recent Swift bank attacks, one of which was foiled by a typo, and the Sony Pictures hacks of 2014.
That hackers really messed up Sony's shit is indisputable, but how they did it (and also who they were) is still up in the air. A Recode report sheds some light on the former, though; access was apparently gained through a Zero Day vulnerability, a previously unknown hole that could very well have been for sale on the…
Despite a recent FBI briefing attempting to convince the Bureau that evidence was flimsy, the White House is standing strong behind its decision to point the Sony Hack finger squarely on North Korea. To prove it, Obama just hit North Korea with tightened sanctions. Because now we're really not doing business with them.
The holidays are a time for eggnog and presents and bizarre credulous rituals involving an old elf-man and his pack of flying caribou. It's also a time to cuddle up by the hearth and begrudgingly explain the latest technology news to your relatives. This week's edition: The Sony hack.
In a predictably bizarre move, officials in Pyongyang are now proposing that North Korea and the United States work together on a joint investigation into the Sony Pictures hack. The country says it can prove that they didn't do it. North Korea also warned of the gravest consequences if the U.S. does not agree to the…
The FBI is now officially blaming North Korea for the attacks that have ravaged Sony Pictures for the past weeks.
Citing "a person with knowledge of the situation," the L.A. Times says that Sony is debating* whether to cancel The Interview's December 25 release.
A group of hackers claiming to be responsible for the Sony hacks has offered Sony employees a small lifeline. If the company's staff write to them, it claims, they won't publish their emails online.
The Times of London is reporting that Sony Pictures "cancelled shoots because the problems have left it unable to process payments." The paper cites only one source in its report, but at this point, nothing seems surprising in the world of SPE. The historically awful hack from a couple weeks ago just gets more awful…
Well. This is one of the weirdest things we've heard in a long time.
I work at Sony Pictures Entertainment. Here are a few things that stand out to me about life on the lot right now.
In an attempt to disrupt the downloading of its embarrassingly large leak of data, Sony Pictures is taking inspiration from the hackers themselves to take down torrents.
A couple of years ago, news emerged that Sony Pictures was involved in a remake of the 90's classic Jumanji. But now Sony Pictures has been hacked (again) exposing all kinds of sensitive information. Is an update on that Jumanji remake hidden in there somewhere? Maybe—but the original is all I ever want to watch.
Now things are starting to make sense. The latest leak of data stolen from Sony Pictures in a recent hack appears to be the email archives of two top executives at the company. It also reveals that the hackers asked those executives for money to prevent the destructive attack. Apparently, the execs didn't even open…
According to Bloomberg, the source of the huge Sony Pictures leak has been traced to a five-star hotel in Thailand's capital. Leaching off of the St. Regis hotel's high-speed wi-fi, the hackers, currently believed the work of the North Korea-linked group DarkSeoul, carried out their devastating and embarrassing…
