Multiple police, FBI, cyber analyst sources are confirming that the focus of the FBI’s investigation has moved from North Korea to Los Angeles.
A LAPD officer and FBI agent confirmed that the Bureau is no longer looking at a North Korean angle for the Sony leak but have moved to an insider group working with outsider help.
One of the leakers has a direct connection to a Canada-based hacker who affiliated with the hacker group, LulzSec, say our sources.
Gotnews.com was the first to report on an insider connection here.
Gotnews.com is complying with requests by law enforcement and cyber security companies not to name two of the people involved in the Sony insider hack at this time.
Gotnews.com was the among the very first journalists to question the North Korea angle and interviewed multiple security experts at the time.
Note: A previous version of this story misspelled the hacker group’s name because the editor of Gotnews.com is running a media company, not trying to win a spelling competition.
