Cyberdefense is hard...

One thing that caught my attention in the recent arrest of the anonymous hackers is how the hacker who goes by "Sabu" was apparently caught, he apparently logged into an IRC chat service forgetting to hide his IP address just once.

This is a good example of what cybersecurity is so hard - defense has to be perfect. If attackers have to play defense too though, that will level the field some.
