The war will continue, and the majority of people who don't have the time/inclination/skills to learn all the tricks of the trade will continue to be caught in the middle. SWATting, DOXing, etc. all prove that.
As long as there are governments willing to do whatever it takes to control their citizens, the war will continue. The DDoS of GitHub proves that.
As long as there is money to be made, hackers will still go after your information (SSN's, bank accounts, etc.) In the end, you just need to get used to the war, and try and survive the crossfire.
