The Chinese Cyber Law was finally enhanced due to extensive cyber-attacks. The cyber law of china which did not have strong provisions for cyber crimes earlier have become a victim recently to many cyber threats. China is considered to be the hacker’s hub has now been hit by many cyber crimes. The amendments were not made to cyber laws corresponding to the latest cyber crimes.
This loophole has been exploited by the cyber criminals who have caused serious damages by their extensive cyber attacks. A system is as strong as its weakest ling. The Chinese Government has finally decided to strengthen its cyber law to combat the cyber crimes.
The hackers’ hub has been hit by various internal attackers posing a great threat to the security of the country. The attackers earlier in china were intending to launch DOS & DDOS attacks on firms which failed to employ them. The DOS attacks called Denial of service attack were earlier a serious attack where the attacker could exploit maximum bandwidth there by causing the failure of systems.
The DDOS attacks come up recently are the most dangerous attacks as they use hundreds of systems at the same time unlike DOS attacks which uses a single system. The Chinese Cyber Law is taking all its shape to curb such dangerous cyber attacks.
