What’s new: China’s internet industry regulator has ordered the cloud units of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Baidu Inc. to step up efforts in preventing online and telecommunication fraud.
The regulator said the two cloud platforms were allowing access to a large number of scam websites, and ordered them to fulfil their responsibilities to network and information security, according to a notice published on Tuesday by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on WeChat (link in Chinese). The talks were held by the ministry’s cybersecurity bureau and the country’s public security bureau.
