FBI: North Korean hackers Sony forgot to use proxy




The FBI claims to know that hackers Sony Pictures are from North Korea, because they have forgotten to turn on their proxy. It may also be that the proxy is not working. Claims that the head of the FBI, James Comey.

FBI According to Comey, the hackers used a proxy in almost all cases, but they are forgotten in a few cases to turn the proxy, though it may also be that the proxy was not working due to technical circumstances. That said, according to Wired Comey during a speech.

Therefore, the FBI would know which IP addresses are used in the hack. Which addresses would North Korea accessories. “They closed the connection quickly after they discovered their mistake,” said Comey. “But not before we saw where the connection came from.” It is not known how the FBI would know it at the North Korean IP addresses is not a proxy.

The claims of the US government that the Sony hack was committed by North Korean hackers can count on skepticism. As the attackers first tried to squeeze by threatening to release information from Sony and Sony would not pay. Only later the hackers made political claims.
