Yes, but who is the enemy?
- The Russians (or whoever compromised the company)? I'd be surprised if we weren't doing similar things to them.
- The people at SolarWinds who develop and sell crap?
- The people who have access to our personal information and choose to use SolarWinds crap?
- The investors who use inside information to make a profit and screw the public?

I'm sure our intel folks are hard at work too :)
That said instead of "enemy". Think "opportunity". Let's say you have 3 acquaintances all blindfolded about to get hit by a train and you have the ability to only save one **if you choose**. Do you let all 3 get hit to be fair or do you save 1 and hope maybe someone else saves the other two?
Sometimes it is nothing more than that.
