台北市政府衛生局去年9月爆發公共衛生資訊管理系統遭駭客入侵,市民就醫個資外洩,調查局台北市調處資安科調查後,發現入侵系統的IP來自大陸上海地區,並竊得台北市民個資298萬餘筆

(Taipei Department of Health public health information management system was hacked in Sept last year. Citizens' medical personal information was leaked. After an investigation by the investigation bureau, the IP was confirmed to be from Shanghai, PRC, and had obtained 2.98 million personal data)

調查局雖然懷疑駭客使用的上海IP可能也是國際駭客的跳板,但也不排除是大陸駭客所為

(Although the bureau suspects that the Shanghai IP might have been a springboard used by the hacker, they also does not exclude the possibility of mainland/PRC hacker.)

 

(Apologies for the crude translation)

 

Personal thought: 

Won't be surprised if this is indeed done by the Xi regime. There have been rumors that the PRC government has been trying to "control" Taiwanese internet opinion by spreading "fake news" on various popular online platforms, such as PTT Bulletin Board System. Data hacked from this time could very well be used in the past election in Nov for posting "fake news", which was said to be the determining factor of the victory of Kuomintang (a political party), such as Han Kuo-yu in Kaohsiung.

Ya , mainland is slowly trying to gain back control of taiwan(against the will of the citizens of taiwan). The small country is frequently met with threats from china and is aggressively oppressed. I absolutely agree with you, this is probably one of many incidents, but most of the other hacking incidents must be hidden away
