Taipei, April 5 (CNA) A hacker group calling itself AnonymousFox has since March 25 undertaken defacement attacks against about 100 government and private websites in Taiwan, according to data from Zone-H.org, the largest website defacement archive.

About 100 websites using the domain "com.tw" have had their front pages defaced since that date as a result of attacks by AnonymousFox, according to the data.

In most cases, the defacement of these websites has caused more reputational damage than financial losses or leaked information, Zone-H said.

Zone-H provides unlimited information such as the address of hacked websites, the time the hacking occurred and a screenshot of the webpage after it was hacked.
