Who really hacked Sony? Cybersecurity researchers say they finally know
A group they’ve dubbed “Lazarus Group” is well organized and tied to numerous other attacks on governments, banks, and military institutions in the US and South Korea since 2009.
More than a year after the devastating Sony Pictures hack, a trio of cybersecurity firms claim to have pinpointed the culprits behind the breach that rattled Hollywood and invigorated President Obama’s cybersecurity agenda.
The companies said in a report released Wednesday that an outfit it dubs “Lazarus Group,” which has carried out high-profile attacks on government agencies, militaries, and banks in the US and South Korea since 2009, is responsible for the Sony Pictures incursion in November 2014.
