Google: “Cyberattacks from China have increased rapidly in Taiwan over the past six months”

Google warned on the 1st (local time) that cyberattacks from China against Taiwan have increased significantly over the past six months.

According to Taiwanese media such as Taiwan News, Kate Morgan, Google’s chief engineer in charge of threat analysis, said, “There are more than 100 groups in China alone trying to hack computers in Taiwan’s defense sector and government agencies.”

Morgan pointed out that Chinese cyberattacks on Taiwan are also targeting private companies in Taiwan.

He expressed concern that “Taiwan faces increasing military threats, gray zone campaigns, cyberattacks, and information manipulation.”

He pointed out that Chinese hacker groups are using difficult and advanced techniques to avoid being tracked. This is a method of intruding into small home or office Internet networks and gradually increasing the scope of the attack.

Google’s announcement came as Taiwan is about to hold a presidential election in January next year.

Last October, the U.S. government seemed to be aware of this situation and announced that it was aware of Chinese cyber attacks against Taiwan. Anne Neuberger, deputy adviser for cyber and new technologies at the White House National Security Council (NSC), reaffirmed the United States’ intention to dispatch a team of experts to provide support if Taiwan suffers a cyber attack from China.

Meanwhile, Google said that apart from China, North Korea and Iran also pose serious cyber security threats and urged the country to prepare for them.
