Mysterious balloons hovering ominously over parts of North America are understandably causing some panic. If Taiwan is any indication, these sightings are happening around the globe.
Taiwan has spotted dozens of these sorts of balloons — suspected Chinese military aircraft — in its airspace in recent years, the Financial Times reported. After the US shot down four balloons, a Taiwanese Defense spokesperson said Taipei might do the same if it were concerned enough about them.
What could be more frightening than a big, white spy balloon suspended overhead? The answer, recent moves by Taiwan suggest, is malicious Chinese hackers.
“For an ordinary person, you walk to the convenience store and see it’s been defaced, and then you walk into the high-speed rail station and see defacement messages,” said Silvia Yeh, an analyst at the research firm TeamT5. “Then you go online and see that you can’t access Taiwan’s presidential website. Their first impression would be that China’s capabilities are so strong, and our internal systems have already been compromised.”
