Of course, this is an asymmetric attack and you can't stop it. In other words, it is a democratizing attack.
When I worked with the FBI on security issues in the financial sector, I was disgusted by how little attention and funds were available to fix problems like unauthorized transactions but attention is available for issues like this.
