China has been known for hosting some of the most notorious cybercriminal gangs. In the past, fingers have been pointed towards the country due to the involvement of cybercriminals based within China in a number of high-profile cyber crimes. Now, Chinese authorities have launched a large-scale offensive against cybercriminal gangs.


Cyber crime

The operation against these criminal gangs has been launched under the Ministry of Public Security. It involved a number of police units who coordinated closely in the efforts to dig out cybergangs and then bust them.

According to the figures released by the Ministry, so far, the authorities have been successful in busting a total of 700 cybercriminal gangs. In the process of doing so, 4400 cyber cases have been resolved and 8900 relevant suspects are put under arrest.

The Ministry revealed that in the process of usurping these cyber gangs, it discovered that the criminal activities of these gangs had spilled from the online world into the offline world too. Some of these gangs were involved in the trafficking of weapons and fake medicine.

A rather interesting revelation made by the Ministry was about that of the ‘illegal internet public relations’ scam. The¬†perpetrators of this scam would post negative comments and opinions about a given corporate entity. They would then demand money from that corporate entity as a fee to remove this negative content. Surprisingly, the model was quite successful and the scam was able to amass a total of $1.5 million in fees.

It is good to note that the Chinese authorities have finally clamped down on cyber gangs which have not only affected China’s own economy but have also frequently targeted international organizations and foreign governments.
