[su_right_ad]Researchers indicate disgruntled former Sony workers, not North Korea, were responsible for the hacks.

Even the unprecedented decision to release details of an ongoing FBI investigation and President Barack Obama publicly blaming the hermit authoritarian regime hasn’t quieted a chorus of well-qualified skeptics who say the evidence just doesn’t add up.

Researchers from the cyber intelligence company Norse have said their own investigation into the data on the Sony attack doesn’t point to North Korea at all and instead indicates some combination of a disgruntled employee and hackers for piracy groups is at fault.

The FBI says it is standing by its conclusions, but the security community says they’ve been open and receptive to help from the private sector throughout the Sony investigation.[su_csky_ad]

    They were wrong about Iraq which resulted in a war, and now they are wrong about North Korea which easily could have done the same. American intelligence agencies need to stop doing what they are doing until there is an overhaul in how they do it.
    Strike three, could kill us all.
