A recent story in the Washington Post that describes former FBI assistant director Shawn Henry’s plan to “name names” of governments that sponsor hackers to break into U.S. networks. He also suggests that the private firm he recently joined, CrowdStrike, may take countermeasures against hackers. Such “hack-back” strategies have been debated in the security community for several years. That Mr. Henry is talking openly about going on the offensive against hackers may mean that hacker battles are about to get more interesting.
