Democratic Progressive Party was attacked by hackers

Date: July 23, 2007

Chinese hackers have sent e-mails to the Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) local branches and other recipients in the name of the DPP chairman with a trojan horse virus in them, the Ministry of Justice's Investigation Bureau said yesterday.

The bureau said in a press statement that people receiving the e-mails should not open them as confidential information held on the computer might be intercepted by the hackers.

The e-mails were sent to DPP branch offices in Keelung, Tainan County, Pingtung County and Hsinchu City, as well as another 11 individuals, the bureau said. Each e-mail has DPP Chairman Yu Shyi-kun shown as the sender.

The e-mail, with the title "Chairman Yu: Chinese Communist Party and Chinese Nationalist Party [KMT] have teamed up to jeopardize Taiwan," carried content that mentioned China's development, its anti-satellite missiles tests and the KMT's boycott of the DPP government's budget.
