Interesting concepts... but...

there's the SONY hack that had a lot of insider info in the dumps. So, if SONY wasn't an insider attack, why would they think this hack is an insider? It's pure speculation, and the security guys says it is speculation. That they would keep the web-facing separate apparently wasn't done by SONY or the invaders somehow got access to the internal crap. So what's next.. blame the Norks?

I do wonder if many of these so-called "hacks" aren't inside jobs even it's just passing on a password or two. You can always find someone who's just pissed about something the company did that they might be tempted.
