That's problematic... in many cases, attackers do "hijack"
home PCs or corporate networks to do their "dirty work"
without the actual users noticing. In such a case, you
could conclude that the attacks has been originated by
one person, but carried out by several ones (or, to be
precise, by their PCs). Attackers explore networks and
turn them into tools they use theirselves, or they sell
them to others who then use them (e. g. for further
exploration, SSH attacks, spamming, illegal data storage
and so on).
