Last year saw 200 million cyber attacks hit Taiwan's military networks

If anyone has any doubts over the scale of cyberattacks, you only have to look to the Far East. Taiwan's military and military-associated networks combined were attacked by Chinese hackers more than 200 million times in 2017 alone, according to a report in Liberty Times. The number of attempted attacks against these networks amounted to hundreds of millions each year between 2014 and 2017.


The five most targeted military and military-associated websites under attack were the Ministry of National Defense website, National Defense University, the Recruitment Center of National Armed Forces, hospitals subordinated to the Medical Affairs Bureau of MND, and the Political Warfare Bureau of MND.


A military expert reportedly said that military-associated hospitals have been frequently targeted as the hackers are trying to access healthcare and personal details of service members in order to dig out more military intelligence.


A MND official said that the military and military-associated networks are isolated from each other and have adopted the most advanced software and hardware to tighten cyber security against hackers.
