Virus-infected devices given out by police
Police have apologised after giving infected memory sticks as prizes in a government-run cyber-security quiz.
Taiwan’s national police agency said 54 of the flash drives it gave out at an event highlighting a government’s cybercrime crackdown contained malware.
The virus, which can steal personal data and has been linked to fraud, was added inadvertently, it said.
