This weekend featured a few cyberattacks around the world... connected or not?

The French government was apparently poked by China.

The French finance ministry has shut down 10,000 computers after a "spectacular" cyber attack from hackers using Internet addresses in China, officials and reports said on Monday.

And the South Koreans were hit by an international botnet.

South Korean police have isolated 30 overseas servers that were ordering more than 34,000 zombie computers to carry out DDoS attacks, Yonhap news agency said.
These servers have been traced to 18 countries and territories around the world, including the United States, Russia, Italy, Mexico, Israel and Hong Kong.
