Sony hack was an inside
confirm that North Korea was not behind
the Sony hack contrary to major media
An investigation into the
data shows that someone copied the released
200GB of data over 5-6 hours on the night of
Based on the date time
stamps of the released data the transfer
speed is roughly in the range of 480Mbit/s
which equates to USB 2.0.
We don’t know what time
zone that time stamped data comes from. (The
time is the mtime Unix Time format, local
time of the machine. It’s not compensating
for any time zone. It doesn’t know the time
zone so if the computer is running from 10
pm to 2 AM at Sony Pictures Entertain in Los
Angeles that means a potential hacker in
Japan could be just ending the work day at 7
PM Tokyo time.)
The Guardians of Peace
have also given an indication about their
origins pushing against the North Korean
Our Gotnews.com investigation
into the data that has been released by the
“hackers” shows that someone at Sony was
copying 182GB at minimum the night of the
21st–the very same day that Sony Pictures’
head of corporate communications, Charles
Sipkins, publicly resigned from a $600,000
job. This could be a coincidence but it
seems unlikely. Sipkins’s former client was
NewsCorp and Sipkins was officially fired by
Pascal’s husband over a snub by the
Two days later a malware
We are left with
several conclusions about the malware
1. The “hackers” did this
leak physically at a Sony LAN workstation.
Remember Sony’s internal security is hard on
the outside squishy in the center and so it
wouldn’t be difficult for an insider to harm
Sony by downloading the material in much the
same way Bradley Manning or Edward Snowden
did at their respective posts.
2. If the “hackers”
already had copies, then it’s possible they
made a local copy the night of the 21st to
prepare for publishing them as a link in the
malware screens on the 24th.
Sony CEO Michael Lynton’s
released emails go up to November 21, 2014.
Lynton got the “God’sApstls” email demand
for money on the 21st at 12:44pm.
This tweet by an American
fluent in Japanese was yet another
indication that it was an insider at Sony
but in Japan.
The Guardians of Peace
“hackers” sent a demand through a possibly
spoofed gmail account–firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dfrank1973 email is
another tip off that the hacker is Japanese.
Jerome D. Frank (the second edition of whose
seminal work Persuasion and Healing
was published in 1973)
was a critic of nuclear weapons. Japan
is the only country in the world to have
been nuked. It is also the most likely
country to be nuked if North Korea has its

hackers already had everything, were reading

then pulled the trigger on the malware a few
days later but it’s highly unlikely.
