BEIJING — China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) on Aug 4 unveiled measures to fight online crime.
The ministry said Chinese Internet users easily fall victim to cyber attack, Internet fraud and personal information leakage, among other online crimes, which pose a big threat to national security and social stability.
The MPS vowed to increase cooperation with the Cyberspace Administration of China and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to prevent hacking and ensure data security.
It will also improve surveillance by cyber police to curb illegal activities.
The ministry said it will harshly crack down on pornography, rumors or information about terrorism, guns or drugs.
