China's cyber theft could be more serious than reported: official
Taipei, Sept. 27 (CNA) China's cyber hacking of Taiwanese websites could be more serious than has been officially reported, Taiwan's intelligence chief said Thursday.
Tsai De-sheng, director-general of the National Security Bureau (NSB), confirmed reports during a Legislative Yuan question-and-answer session that China has hacked some 26,000 pieces of information from Taiwan's Internet system over the past seven years.
However, the figure tallies only those cases that have been discovered, Tsai noted, adding that there are doubtless other hacking cases that have gone undetected.
During the interpellation session, opposition Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Tsai Huang-liang asked about the NSB's stance on a proposal to allow Chinese companies to invest in the local telecommunications sector.
In response, the NSB director said that countries all over the world have adopted strict restrictions on Chinese investment in their telecom sectors because China is known to be incredibly aggressive in its cyber hacking
