Regarding the stories on the news about possible North Korean involvement in attacks against US Government websites, my philosophy is to backtrack where the attacks are coming from, proactively cut off those making the attacks, and then launch offensive attacks against the parties responsible. But I fear the current administration lacks the will to conduct this type of "offensive" cyber warfare (the last administration also lacked the will power). If North Korean shot down one of our planes, we'd take action. The response should be no different in cyberspace.
