US cyber strategy legalises espionage on friends and foes alike

Associated Press runs the story on the fresh information about US cyber-warfare strategy. For example there’s the legalised continuation of espionage of friends and enemies alike by the US. Whilst most other countries have the decency to at least vehemently deny any such actions, the US decided to proudly, and - at least based on the AP article - publicly, declare it. As an example, the new White House guidelines would allow the military to transmit computer code to another country’s network to test the route and make sure connections work - much like using satellites to take pictures of a location to scout out missile sites or other military capabilities.
