Chinese SCADA software bugs? Gosh!

What a surprise! There are exploitable bugs in Chinese SCADA software:
The vulnerabilities were found in two products from Sunway ForceControl Technology, a Beijing-based company that develops SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) software for a wide variety of industries, including defense, petrochemical, energy, water and manufacturing, the agency said.
Might I add that these are bugs discovered by outsiders. Naturally there wouldn't be built-in back doors. Would there?

I've been unambiguous in my advice to China, that they should get out front on this. So far, we get the same innocent "Who, me?" response I get out of my dog when I find a pile of poop underneath the grand piano.

"Bad doggie! Bad, bad, bad doggie!" Well, I guess some dogs need more than a whack on the snout with a rolled-up newspaper.

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?
