Sony Describes Hack Attack as ‘Unprecedented’ | Re/code

The plot thickens...

"In his comments, Mandia described the malicious software used in the attack against Sony as “…undetectable by industry standard antivirus software.” He also said that the scope of the attack is unlike any other previously seen, primarily because its perpetrators sought to both destroy information and to release it to the public. The attack is one “…for which neither SPE nor other companies could have been fully prepared,” Mandia said.

Sony’s comments on the attack come on the same day that North Korea denied any connection to it, but in the same breath praised the efforts of those responsible for it."
