Not only that, if the email transfer were authorized, who wouldn't notice their bandwidth being consumed in 20mb segments for a month?
In addition, it is claimed that only half the source code was stolen. Oddly enough, this happens to be the half with enough source to build a working engine, but nothing about the game's plotline was revealed at all. We still have no clue why the hell Gordon is in Europe.
The idea has been going around is that someone ON THE DEVELOPING TEAM actually leaked the game, just to whet appetites, and also to give an excuse to delay the game again. I'm pretty sure it doesn't take an additional 4 months to change the encryption key used to lock the game...
