“We never had good responses to begin with,” said John Bambenek, a malware researcher with Fidelis Cybersecurity.

“Are we going to go to war with Russia over this? Theoretically, it is an option,” he said. “But that’s not a winning scenario.”

He also only has about a month left before he leaves office.
