Absolutely crazy to believe our lawmakers did not see this coming. Numbskulls in charge again, "oops I did it again" theory of peter principle.
 
As a believer in backups and firewalls, and training, we need to make sure we are all level minded and level headed when it comes to just allowing everything to be hacked.

"Several lawmakers are upset that a former NSA hacking tool is behind several cyberattacks against American cities, most recently Baltimore. However, many researchers say it is on end-users to patch their machines and protect them from these kinds of vulnerabilities."
