Hackers Remorse?

                From the New York Times-

                “The State Department on Sunday became the fourth (U.S.) government agency to announce a breach of its computer systems in recent weeks, after an infiltration forced the agency to temporarily shut down its classified e-mail system and public websites. This breach follows a similar one on the unclassified computer systems of the White House last month, which also resulted in a temporary shutdown of its communications systems. There have been similar breaches at the U.S. Postal Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
                “The breach at the White House was believed to be the work of hackers in Russia, while the breaches at NOAA and the Postal Service were believed to be the work of hackers inside China.”

                My Take-
                This hasn’t been properly addressed by the media, let alone the U.S. government. The only proper response to this and so many other recent aggressions by Russia and China is, “Eff you! If you don’t cease and desist these actions we will cease and desist them for you, and possibly also you while we’re at it. Clear? We simply won’t countenance international vandalism of our nation’s important IT networks. Hack that, a--holes.”
