China has been using cyberwarfare to undermine the Taiwanese government for some time. While recent attacks have been less numerous, they have become harder to detect and trace.
The Chinese cyber army is using the attacks to undermine its independence-seeking offshore neighbour, increasingly utilising search engines such as Google to cover its tracks. While many of the incursions have been aimed at causing relatively low-level disruption, an increasing number are targeting core systems – and often appear to emanate from outside China.
The Chinese government denies any involvement in cyberwarfare and claims to be more sinned against than sinning. However, its campaign to seize full control of Taiwan by cyberforce seems to be gathering momentum.
