INSPECTOR KNACKER of the Taiwan yard has swooped down on a ring of 
cyber-thiefs who had been targeting government and corporate data 

The six individuals arrested allegedly had attacked various government 
agencies, state-run companies, telecom corporations and a television 
shopping network.

Investigators alleged that the suspects stole more than 50 million 
personal data records, including information about President Ma 
Ying-jeou, his predecessor Chen Shui-bian and police chief Wang 
Cho-chiun. The ring offered to sell the data for about $10 per entry.
