See this story about a utility company hacking into Greenpeace's computers. h/t Slashdot.

The French state energy firm, EDF Energy, has been found guilty of spying on environmental campaign group Greenpeace.

A Paris court today ordered EDF to be fined ¤1.5 million (£1.4m) for hacking into Greenpeace computers in 2006. EDF has also been ordered to pay half a million euros (£428,000) in damages to Greenpeace.

EDF is a French state-owned energy giant and is the world leader in the production of nuclear power. The company will be familiar to many British people who are its domestic electricity customers. It is also a sponsor of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Now, it has been found guilty of “industrial scale espionage against Greenpeace,” by French Judge Isabelle Prévost-Desprez. It had been charged with complicity in concealing stolen documents and complicity to intrude on a computer network, according to The Guardian newspaper.
