FBI memo warns of malware possibly linked to hack at Sony Pictures

Steve Ragan | Dec. 3, 2014
Insiders who have seen the memo believe the timing is no coincidence.

Reacting to the news that North Korea is behind the attacks, a person claiming to represent GOP told Salted Hash:

"We are an international organization including famous figures in the politics and society from several nations such as United States, United Kingdom and France. We are not under direction of any state.

"Our aim is not at the film The Interview as Sony Pictures suggests. But it is widely reported as if our activity is related to The Interview. This shows how dangerous film The Interview is. The Interview is very dangerous enough to cause a massive hack attack. Sony Pictures produced the film harming the regional peace and security and violating human rights for money.

"The news with The Interview fully acquaints us with the crimes of Sony Pictures. Like this, their activity is contrary to our philosophy. We struggle to fight against such greed of Sony Pictures."

The GOP released another batch of stolen documents on Monday. The 25GB file dump is said to represent just a fraction of the data that was taken for Sony.

In related news, Sony said they've hired Mandiant to help with recovery and incident response. FireEye's forensics unit is said to have started work over the weekend.
