The competition of one of my company's websites has started a really dirty campaign of acquiring hack links. One of their ingenious tactics has been to seed in links to OUR site withing their hack bot, making US look like we might be responsible for it or using us to cover their tail.

These are .gov and .edu sites.

Is there any way possible to discredit these links? To disavow them at all?

Probably the best way would be to notify the domains that host the hacked pages, so that their web server is secured, and the hacked pages removed. As far as I know there is no way to discredit links to your site.
