Doesn't China have a reputation for being tough on crime? Don't they shoot
major criminals in the back of the head and send a bill to the family for
the bullet?

Why not get tough with all the computer malware creators in China?

The problem is much is Gov't. backed vs. criminal organization like the RBN.

If US just told them all US military & intelligence facilities were
actually not connected to the Internet, they might stop doing it. :)

All "US military & intelligence facilities" are connected to the Internet via
the NIPRnet.

However "US military & intelligence facilities" are not spearphishing other
Gov'ts. to
intall malware on their systems to gain military intellegence and industrial
dominence.

Because every day there are more and more items of malware identified and thus
the
libraries of identification (signatures) grow.

Don't they all have some common pattern/signature, or maybe a common
stack frame?
