hypnosec writes: China is currently taking a tough stance against criminals involved in online crimes and the authorities have busted more than 600 gangs and arrested over 10,000 suspects as of June for crimes such as spreading lewd content, dealing in arms and collecting citizens' personal information illegally. The Ministry of Public Security said in a statement that as many as 3.2 million "harmful" online messages have been deleted and over 60 websites and online forums have been ordered to remove inappropriate content with 30 ISPs being punished for granting network access to unlicensed websites. The campaign also targeted pornography and the illegal sale of personal details.
