NATO losing the cyber war with Russia

NY Times:

Pro-Russia Cyberattacks Catch NATO Flat-Footed

When it comes to deterring the low-level attacks that flow through European computer networks every week, NATO commanders do not seem prepared to take aggressive countermeasures.
It will take more than just defending against these attacks.  NATO and the US need to be able to counterattack in ways that shutdown or otherwise harm the attacking network.  They need a malware defense that destroys the attack computer network.  They also need better tools to locate the cyber attackers.

One idea is to have a cyber version of the HARM missile that destroys enemy radar when it is turned on.  That makes the enemy reluctant to turn on its radar.
