Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense confirmed it was hit by a DDoS attack on Wednesday in what has been an eventful week for the island nation, US-Sino relations, and semiconductors.
The ministry said the network was attacked around 23:40 with connection restored by 00:30 local time on Thursday. Cabinet spokesperson Lo Ping-cheng said work on heightening cyber defenses was underway.
The DDoS attack on the Ministry of Defense followed a separate one on Taiwan’s presidential website on Tuesday.
