Are We Really Up Against The Ropes?

From the NY Times

Above is a link to an article from today’s paper.  Well, online content.

We hear, almost on a daily basis now, about digital attacks by the Russians, the Chinese, the North Koreans, the Iranians, not to mention the daily emails and phone calls we get from the (fake) IRS warning us of our pending arrests by agents named “Joe” who speak with the thickest Pakistani-like accent.  We, as individuals, are bombarded daily by email attempts  for us to “re-set” our password so hackers can get into our computers.

Don’t we have anyone, any company, any secret government agency that is fighting back?  I hope so.  One would have to wonder why some of tech nerd heroes aren’t setting traps for potential hackers so that WE can then go hack THEIR systems.
