    Cybersecurity is a shambles in the U.S., but nobody seems able to do anything about it, and things appear to be going from bad to worse. Both Presidents George W. Bush and Obama have promised to appoint a cybersecurity czar -- or "cybersecurity coordinator," as the current administration calls the position -- but still there is none.

    Early in August, White House cybersecurity adviser Melissa Hathaway -- who was at the helm in an "acting" capacity -- resigned, saying the president was taking too long to make a permanent appointment and bemoaning her inability to drive any real change.
