Sony/Korea/Smith Mundt Modernization act.

Alternative hypothesis.
Fact: The entire [un-numbered] technology dept at Sony was sacked last Jan.
LA times Jan article
Supposition: They left one or two doors open for themselves.

"It’s clear from the hard-coded paths and passwords in the malware that whoever wrote it had extensive knowledge of Sony’s internal architecture and access to key passwords. While it’s plausible that an attacker could have built up this knowledge over time and then used it to make the malware, Occam’s razor suggests the simpler explanation of an insider. It also fits with the pure revenge tact that this started out as."

Now to North Korea......

Death of the Smith Mundt Act
More specifically "Smith Mundt Modernization Act, eliminating the domestic dissemination ban." 2013

"The American public will see an unprecedented increase in propaganda, despite the tagline of news agencies claiming network transparency over the new provision."

Interesting to me NY Times is so obviously compromised again.
