French followup

For those following my reference yesterday to hackers targeting French government computers, a followup story appeared today. Net net: China denies involvement. I tend to believe the denial, since the Chinese aren't this sloppy. At least I don't think the Chinese top-tier talent is sloppy enough to get caught like this. Maybe an undergraduate hacking class assignment went awry?

Too bad the French are signatories to the Paris treaty of 1856 that outlawed privateering. I wonder if they might reinterpret the treaty in such a way that would allow them sponsor cyber privateers?

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
