US has no counter attack strategy to deal with cyber attacks

Russia says American efforts to capture hackers may violate international law and has shown that it will not be easily influenced by public shaming.
The claim that capturing hackers violates international law makes no sense.

The best way to deal with these attacks is an effective counter attack.  What is needed is something like a HARM missile which the military uses to hit radar sites when they try to see US aircraft.  The system should recognize the hack and send malware or some other means of destroying the attacker's computer.  It would have to weave its way through the zombie computers used to disguise the attacker to get to the originator of the attack.  

Whatever the Obama administration has been doing has certainly been ineffective.  Even the White House was attacked by the Russians during the 2014 campaign and Obama said very little about and so did the media.
