Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
In my view, there must be some convincing evidence for the president to talk about it. If they did not do it by themselves they must have supported it, or outsourced.

Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
Right, real eveidence.

You will never see any.

Both sides can use this to advantage.  

NK can say, oooo look how bad we are.  

US can say oooo look how bad they are.

In the meantime we can all forget about the malware that the US was caught sending out.

Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
There must be real evidence that they do not share with public, you would not expect the president coming out this string if not, I say.

Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
We should demand better protection as consumers however there is no checks and balances, we do not hear about it until we are already compromised.

Go offensive
 

We need to be offensive when it comes to security. Defensive tactics are generally not working. We need to identify where the loopholes are and close them before exploited again. It is really suprising that one compromised admin user can create this mish damage. How did they captured these amount of information that brought whole company down without being noticed. They must have being downloading data for a while in my view.

Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
Because the govt wants you to believe N. Korea is involved. It helps the sales of weapons to S. Korea.

I think it's pretty obvious the State Dept jumped the shark this time, but the press seems all on-board and the general public doesn't really care about the truth.

Re: Sony is just another company that is wide open
Why does anyone actually beleive that NK had anything to do with SONY?  What a red herring.

Two weeks after we hear about the US malware efforts, it gets buried by the Sony hack.

Great timing indeed.  Nicely done.

Look over here at this shiny new news article, forget this old tired one.

Sony is just another company that is wide open
Sony is just another company that is wide open and did not secure personal data and other sensitive information. They made an earlier business decision to not secure their databases. And now some politics is involved.

I think that the successful attack at JP Morgan Chase surprised me more. The largest US bank lost personal information of 76 million households and it took several months to detect.

Unfortunately, current security approaches can't tell you what normal looks like in your own systems and the situation is getting worse according to Verizon. Verizon is reporting that this a growing issue. Less than 14% of breaches are detected by internal security tools according to the annual international breach investigations report by Verizon.  

So we need to protect our sensitive data itself with modern data centric security technology. As consumers, we must demand better protection from the companies we do business with.
