If a lot of what the Obama Administration announced this week by way of new cybersecurity proposals sounded familiar. it is only because they were

Investigators at the U.S> Postal Service  worked quietly for almost two months to determine the scope and nature of the recent intrusion before finally shutting it down.

The White House appears ready to pin the blame for the Sony hack on North Korea...but can it really be sure it has the right culprit? 
Investigators can take weeks and even months to piece together an attack, especially a major one of the kind that hit Sony. Even then, it's often impossible to assign blame with 100 percent accuracy.
