Are nations paying criminals for botnet attacks?

Nations that want to disrupt their enemies' banking, media and government resources don't need their own technical skills; they can simply order botnet attack services from cybercriminals. [Front page...]

Is it still a crime if "America" asks me to do it? Or is that just patriotism?

When is War Murder and when is it combat casualties? For me it all goes back to basic self defense... if someone's trying to hurt you or yours as an individual or as a nation you have a right to self defense.

The further we "wander" from this basic concept of self defense, the more like murderous tyrants we become...imho
