Security experts contacted by eWEEK regard the Sony Pictures breach as an interesting event, though it is one that unfortunately is not unique.
Todd Harris, director at Core Security, said the attack is an interesting blend of hacktivism, social engineering, intellectual property theft and classic data breach.
"While the hack itself doesn't surprise me, the varying tactics used does," Harris said. "Not only was the entire network disabled, but the hackers put circa 1980s graphics on everyone's computers with a semi-threatening warning in broken English."
