Just because you don’t understand how something works does not mean that it is “difficult to understand” OR that it is “poorly understood.”
It means only that you don’t understand how it works.
See: Crap claims by a prominent Democratic campaign that their website was hacked, when clearly the issue is that a bandwidth overage (due to their increased national exposure) caused their secondary host/reseller to exceed their bandwidth agreement with the primary host and go down for nonpayment.
Clear as day, but somehow the news media won’t listen to the tech people who do this all day, every day for a living. Instead, they prefer to sensationalize and sell it as a crime mystery full of “poorly understood” technologies.
