The China Post reports that a male suspect with the surname of Shih was arrested on May 1 for hacking into a local classical music Web site (h/t The Hacker News).

Shih's apartment was raided and his computer was seized, according to the report. According to Taiwan's Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), Shih confessed to the police that he had leveraged a SQL injection vulnerability to access the Web site's database and make changes to customer data.

The CIB stated that the investigation was launched after the unidentified Web site's operator reported that it had been hacked in March.
