Taiwan breaks up hacking ring

Published by at 6:28 am under Taiwan

This AFP/Google News article is very short on detail. Perhaps some of our readers in Taiwan can comment on the local media reporting. From the article:

Police in Taiwan have arrested six people suspected of stealing personal data from state firms, including information about the island’s current and former presidents, officials said Wednesday.

    Thought you might be interested: Chinese hackers injected an exploit into the site of a good-sized online game company, GamesCampus. I did catch it, and let me tell you, it was a devil to fix…

    Google’s record: http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?client=Firefox&hl=en-US&site=http://gamescampus.com/

    The malware was a bizarre combination of some really fancy watchdog services that were protecting a hilariously poorly written visual basic script that manually manipulated Internet Explorer. The services used icons that looked like they belonged to GamesCampus games.

    I mostly wanted to report this because GamesCampus hasn’t mentioned it on their site news, and I doubt they will.
