+ - Climate E-Mails Stolen by Spies, Not a 'Hacker'-> 3

Submitted by inthealpine
inthealpine writes: "A very clever nerd can cause a great deal of disruption and obviously make intelligence services very nervous, but a sophisticated intelligence operation is capable of yielding the sort of results we've seen here," [David King, Britain's former chief science adviser] told The Independent. King also went on to push the idea that American lobbyists could be behind the hacking. Does anyone else think that this could easily be a lone hacker or small group of hackers with an agenda? Why does it have to be a large government entity or a well funded lobby group? I'm not a hacker by any stretch, but this totally seems like something a 'lone hacker' could be inclined to do.
