According to security expert John Bumgarner of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, in the three weeks since the initial attack on Sony’s network, he still found numerous unpatched vulnerabilities. Sony failed to reply directly to the report, but had patched several of the flaws after being notified.
He found no evidence of breaches beyond the two Sony has disclosed. But he said he was able to find gateways to internal systems and locate data that would be useful to hackers by using simple techniques that he shared with Reuters.
