Report Claims Russians Hacked Sony

From the how-many-people-were-in-there dept., Mathew J. Schwartz reports:

Russian hackers, using spear-phishing attacks, successfully breached the network of Sony Pictures Entertainment in November 2014, and continue to have on-demand access to Sony’s network, according to a new report from cybersecurity firm Taia Global. But it’s not clear if those hackers unleashed the malware attack and data leaks for which the “Guardians of Peace” hacking group has taken credit, or if the Russian team was operating independently.

Taia Global says its report is based on Sony Pictures Entertainment documents obtained by a Russian hacker. Those documents date from November and December 2014 and have not been seen in any of the data that has been previously leaked by “G.O.P.”
