US-CERT released alert TA14-353A today detailing a “SMB Worm Tool” recently used by cyber threat actors against a “major entertainment company”. Given the timing of the US formal accusations against North Korea, this certainly hints that the malware toolset being referenced is the one used by the Guardians of Peace (GOP) in the recent Sony […]
Anonymous fights fire with fire – threatens attacks against Sony (and others?) if The Interview is not released// December 19th, 2014 // No Comments » // Hacking and Security
In an odd but not totally unexpected twist to the story, a hacking group claiming to represent Anonymous has threatened Sony with the same type of bitch slap they got from [cough] North Korea’s GOP if the movie The Interview is not released as planned. This was followed by other messages from a poster claiming […]
FBI releases official update on Sony Investigation – officially confirms North Korea involvement in attack against Sony// December 19th, 2014 // No Comments » // Hacking and Security
The following just went across the wire, released by the FBI, in which they “concluded that the North Korean government is responsible” for the attack and leak of Sony Pictures Entertainment data.

In the wake of Sony’s embarrassing system breach and data leak, their delay of the upcoming movie, The Interview, may not be the cowering, knee-jerk reaction it appears to be. Assuming the attack against their corporate data systems came from the North Koreans, Sony’s play just might be brilliant.

A Pastebin dump attributed to Guardians of Peace (GOP) was released a few hours ago followed by the purported screenplay for the upcoming movie The Interview. In the dump, the GOP continued to harp on their Christmas Day threat while including an invite to the public for special “requests”. The dump included another little surprise […]

Several research groups have studied China’s walled-off Internet infrastructure (via search engine results, reverse engineered software and hardware products, leaked router or firewall settings, etc.) […]

The Polar Biology journal captured an unusual incident involving seals and penguins on an unnamed remote island in the sub-Antarctic. Yes, the animals were caught having sex with each other – and it’s not the first time sexual predatory seals have been caught having their way with the cute little penguins. Back in 2006, “amorous […]
