From Nature's recent interview will Phil Jones
...the hack of the server was a sophisticated attack. Although the police and the university say only that the investigation is continuing, Nature understands that evidence has emerged effectively ruling out a leak from inside the CRU, as some have claimed. And other climate-research organizations are believed to have told police that their systems survived hack attempts at the same time.
Not that this is a particularly surprising conclusion; Frank Bi has been investigating the CRU hack since the story broke, almost exactly a year ago. The whole notion that it was an inside job by some dissident CRu employee never had much credibility among those not wearing tin-foil hats.
Thanks bigcitylib. Though I'd still like to know what's this "evidence" that Nature is alluding to. I think I'll ask.
Nature has no evidence is my guess.
Paul S, why do you hate the idea of asking questions?
Ask away Frank. But Nature won't answer your questions.
Nature's David Adam has replied.
