Fallen behind?
I wonder if US cyber-security has rested on its laurels a bit in recent years, as it seems bizarre that so many attacks are getting through without any obvious repurcussion.

Then again, as has been shown with the NSA revelations, intelligent agencies can do a lot of stuff behind the scenes without us ever knowing, so this could well the case that these sorts of attacks happen all the time both ways and this is simply being dredged up to finagle some political support for legislative or administrative changes.

can you imagine?
Can you imagine what the other side must be thinking?

Here we as a country have been snooping, attacking, planting malware, and intercepting their traffic for years and we seem upset when we find them doing the same things.

How ever will we stop them we ask?

It's simple, you can't.  You can't stop our own agencies from spying on us and you can't stop nation states from this continued silent cyberwar.

It's always a good read but it will never be something new we did not expect to find.

We ask how to protect our networks with more tools and products but really can you ever think that we will get ahead of this wave of cyber warfare?

 

We can try to keep out the criminals and kiddies and insiders and fraudsters, but when it comes to nations, good luck!
