The Chinese flag has been planted on the websites of several local government agencies across Taiwan amid a live-fire exercise by the PLA.
Government websites were covered with the Chinese flag for more than 10 hours from Friday to Saturday.
The Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs website was down for several hours on August 2, 4 and 5. There were 17 million access attempts per minute from numerous Chinese and Russian IP addresses.
As a result, central government agencies have been ordered to remain on high alert regarding China’s cyber activities on the Internet.
In this way, Beijing demonstrated to Taiwan its ability to wage war in cyberspace. In the event of real hostilities, we think the consequences will be much larger.
