Shadow Brokers began releasing batches of US intelligence cyberweapons more than a year ago, in August 2016. Former defense secretary and CIA director Leon Panetta has called the leaks "incredibly damaging." With morale at the agency reportedly plummeting, some NSA employees have left for the private sector. Not only has Shadow Brokers leaked stolen information, but it has also identified at least one former member of the NSA's elite Tailored Access Operations (TAO) hacker team.

"We should have ratcheted up the defense parts significantly." Offense informs defense, yes. But intelligence agencies in charge of defense too often results in defense being pushed down the priority list.
