seems to me that its a coverup. I think they want to save some people. Are they saying that ALL logs are not there? Logs dont come from just the server or device that houses the data. Routers, some switches, other servers and even the workstations have logs. It seems to me that unless ALL logs everywhere are missing or destroyed/erased, its a cover up. It depends on which side, inside or the overall effects of how bad the hack really was. Maybe the hacker erased everything. who knows for sure. or, its an forceful pushback to the government.
