from here (clipping source)

if you thought the problem of accurate attribution of misdeeds was some obscure problem unique to cyberwarfare, think again. we live in a world where grandmothers, dead people, and network printers get accused of copyright infringement, where small businesses are sued by their own bank when someone steals all their money, and where the jewish people have repeatedly been blamed for society's problems throughout history.

attribution is something that doesn't seem like it should be hard, but clearly if a goat can be charged with attempted grand theft auto then attribution much harder than we give it credit for.
