Officials: US better at finding cyber attackers

U.S. military and law enforcement officials say the government has made significant strides in figuring out who is responsible for complex cyber attacks.
They are using what experts say is a mix of high-tech forensics and a greater emphasis on spying within the online world.
If you do not know who is attacking your computer network, it is almost impossible to determine whether the U.S. should strike back, whom to hit, and how hard to hit them.
U.S. authorities will not reveal exactly how they are ferreting out cyber criminals in the vast, often anonymous Internet universe. But officials describe a greater government-wide emphasis on collecting intelligence related to computer crimes.
