Taiwan’s Greatest Telco Breached by Suspected Chinese language Hackers

Taiwan's Biggest Telco Breached by Suspected Chinese Hackers

Taiwan’s Protection Ministry is urging Chunghwa Telecom, the the island’s largest telecom firm, to enhance its cybersecurity following an information breach that compromised government-related info.

The hackers, reportedly believed to be backed by the Chinese language authorities, made off with 1.7TB of knowledge following the Chunghwa compromise and have put all of it up on the market on the Darkish Internet.

The Protection Ministry confirmed the breach to information service AFP on March 1.

“The preliminary evaluation of this case is that hackers obtained Chunghwa Telecom’s delicate info and offered it on the darkish net, together with paperwork from the armed forces, overseas affairs ministry, coast guard and different items,” Taiwanese officers mentioned in a press release. The Protection Ministry added that no confidential info was leaked.

“We have now requested the contractor concerned to strengthen its info safety management to stop any additional incidents,” the assertion mentioned.
