French anti-filesharing company hacked wide open

Torrent Freak is reporting that Trident Media Guard, the company employed by the French copyright industry to spy on peer-to-peer networks, has been hacked:

“A virtual machine leaked a lot of information like scripts, p2p clients to generate fake peers, local physical addresses in the datacenter and even a password that could lead to a major global TMG security breach,” French security researcher Olivier Laurelli, aka Bluetouff, just informed TorrentFreak.
You'd think that a company which sells its services protecting other online would be a bit better with its own digital security; it's a bit like discovering the front door of the Yale factory blowing open in the wind.
