No reliable trace
This is actually raises another problems, somebody hacks and quite well-known company and we are not able to trace it back to where the attack came from. Why would NSA continue to keep all these data then, obviously that does not help in this critical incident.

"...So conspiracy theorists will continue to wonder ..."

I would agree with that, until specific proofs this would never end and we will continue to hear contracting research results.

"Whatever happened to the claims that the Sony hackers were actually Russians ..."

Russia would most likely be part of it under any circumstances, one of these technologically advanced countries would be providing the required skills I would say.

Asia-Pacific
Obviously we still have not certainty on this subject, Asia-Pacific does not mean North Korea, it may as well be China when you think what country would have the skill to execute that type of attacks.

Re: but Russia?
That's one of many theories that now have been debunked by this new research.

Although--as members of Operation Blockbuster all say, attribution isn't always 100%. So conspiracy theorists will continue to wonder.

but Russia?
Whatever happened to the claims that the Sony hackers were actually Russians who were trying to make it look like the Sony attacks originated from N. Korea?  Was that just hooey, then?
