Hack the Hackers? Companies ITCHING To Go On Cyber Offense!!
[link to www.foxbusiness.com]

Fatigued by a relentless onslaught from hackers, Corporate America is mulling a more aggressive and proactive approach to powerful cyber evildoers.

Offensive counterstrikes are likely illegal in today’s murky legal structure, but some security professionals are calling for at least a more proactive stance that utilizes measures like disinformation campaigns, honey pots and intelligence gathering.

All of this is aimed at squashing cyber attacks that can generate millions of dollars in damages and lost revenue, lead to the loss of intellectual property and even cause reputational harm.

“These adversaries are like a dog with a bone. They will not go away,” said Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder of security firm CrowdStrike. “It doesn’t matter how many times you stop them, the one time they get through they cause very, very serious damage.”

Whether it’s from vindictive terrorists, anti-capitalistic hacktivists or stealthy Chinese hackers, it’s clear that companies are under attack from nefarious online forces.

I am sure any hacker worth his or her salt relishes the competition. This IMHO would be a cyber death sentence for companies taking this stance. The moment a corporation decides to go on the offensive it will attract every hacker from all over the planet, lol, the corporation taking on hackers wouldnt stand a chance.

I would venture to say that there are probably 1000s of companies that are literally frothing to be allowed to retaliate.
