A panel of top cybersecurity officials was briefly left speechless at a congressional hearing Tuesday when Sen. Ted Cruz asked why China had not been sanctioned over a brazen cyber attack on Microsoft Exchange email server software and other attacks.
The officials, from Justice Department, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and the FBI, were testifying at a Judiciary Committee hearing titled 'America Under Siege: Preventing and Responding to Ransomware Attacks.'

Biden Talks ‘Real Shooting War’ and ‘Seeks Permission to Leave’ During Visit to Intel Community
Biden also suggested that we could get involved in a “real shooting war” as a consequence of a cyber attack.
“I think it’s more likely we’re going to end up—if we end up in a war, a real shooting war, with a major power—it’s going to be as a consequence of a cyber breach of great consequence,” Biden said.
The talk is always about the nasty hackers. What about the vulnerabilities of our software systems?
My first thought is usually why is the software letting the hackers in.
A lot of hacking success is because the hacker found a password because a person screwed up. Maybe we can’t fully stop those leaks, but the ransomware attacks where a system is made inoperable should not be possible.
