Same folks behind CRU and NASA cyber-attacks? msato*.zip and FOI2009.zip seem to have same time zone
Recall that climate scientist James Hansen said that someone ripped some files from an NASA server using a password buried in some released e-mails. I took a look at the two
msato2.zip with the ripped material, uploaded by one "stansvonhorch"; unfortunately the files break my
.zip analyzer,1 but I did glean some interesting information:
msato2.zip) has a time zone of -0500.
msato2.zip) has a time zone of -0400.
msato2.zipwas created by "stansvonhorch" in a -0500/-0400 time zone -- which will be the same time zone as
- The files use the "data descriptor record" feature of the
.zipformat, which the software doesn't yet handle.
Update 2010-05-10: There's one clear difference between
msato*.zip: the latter were created on a Mac OS X machine. This should be quite evident for those of us not using Mac OS X (due to the
__MACOSX/*files put in there by the OS).
