ananyo (2519492) writes "The Norfolk Constabulary has closed its investigation into the November 2009 release of private emails between researchers at the Climatic Research CentreLink text at the University of East Anglia in Norwich after failing to identify those responsible. Despite not being able to prosecute any offenders, the police have confirmedLink text that the data breach “was the result of a sophisticated and carefully orchestrated attack on the CRU’s data files, carried out remotely via the internet”. The investigation has also cleared anyone working at or associated with UEA from involvement in the crime.
The hacking resulted in the release of more than 1,000 emails and shook the public’s trust in climate science, though independent investigations after the breach cleared the scientists of wrongdoing."
