Taipei mayor’s office computer hacked by Chinese hacker: official

CNA reports:

The computer on the desk of Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s secretary was hacked recently and investigators have traced the perpetrator to China, a Taipei city government official said Tuesday.

Lee Wei-bin, the city’s information technology commissioner, told the City Council that a hacker installed a Trojan malware program into the secretary’s computer in early April and used it to request personal information about all city advisers from another department.

Department officials alerted Ko’s secretary about the suspicious letter of request, which confirmed that the secretary made no such request, Lee said.
