In December, 2018, Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC) actively reported the attack on its T-Express mobile ticketing system by a hacker to the Taipei City Field Division of MJIB. The hacker purchased one ticket from Nangang to Taipei at the fare of NT$40 and immediately canceled the ticket. When applying for refund, the hacker tampered with the parameter of the system's refund amount column, changing it to NT$200,000, all in order to deceive the system into carrying out the transaction. Fortunately, the back-end accounting system of THSRC identified the anomaly and promptly suspended the refund.
The Taoyuan City Field Division of the MJIB recently solved the case involving the hacking of email accounts. They arrested the supervisor with surname Huang of the information department in a military academy in Taoyuan. Huang had been accused of using his position to hack several academic email accounts of faculty members and sending false reports to the Complaints of the superior unit under their names from October 22 to 30, 2018. The act seriously affected the reputation and leadership prestige of the academy, so the institution pro-actively reported it to the Taoyuan City Field Division in order to safeguard the unity of the academy and the interests of the victims. The Information & Communication Security Section of the Taoyuan City Field Division investigated the case for several days and prepared sufficient digital evidence before applying to Prosecutor Yeh Yi-fa of the Taoyuan District Prosecutors Office for instruction and investigation. On December 14, 2018, after interviewing the suspect Huang and related witnesses, the prosecutor considered the evidence sufficient and ruled on a NT$150,000 bail.
