[Netease] Words on the street say Taiwan Office of the President Website was hacked on the night of August 27. Hacker posted a video where President Ma Ying-jeou and his officials’ portraits  photo-shopped onto the bodies of male strip group Chippendales, dancing to the Korean pop song “sorry sorry”. Currently the website is already restored to normal operation.

There were many videos posted on the site including a picture of President Ma with the words “Stop Lying”. People suspect hackers are expressing their anger towards the slow response of recent Typhoon disaster in Taiwan.

[Taiwan News] Taiwan’s presidential office yesterday denied reports that its website was hacked by satirists lampooning its slow response to Typhoon Morakot, saying it was an online prank instead. Local media reported that the presidential website had been attacked by hackers.

One of the officials in the video was Cabinet Secretary General Hsueh Hsiang-chuan who was called “Taiwan’s Super Savior” by the public. He has been labeled by the media as main culprit of the typhoon disaster.

Hsueh has offered to resign but remains in his job. Hsueh has incurred public wrath after calling a late-night television talk show to justify dining with his family at a five-star hotel on Aug. 8, the day Morakot struck, saying it was Father’s Day in Taiwan and "not out of line"

    when are you going to separate Taiwan from “CHINA” posts. there’s obviously a bit more legroom for freedom since it’s a different country.

      Isn’t Taiwan Republic of China?
      This website is anything related to China, Chinese, Chinese people, etc. not limited to things happening in mainland China.
