Rising Says 80% of Mainland China's Websites have Serious Security Risks

Rising, the largest Internet security product vendor in mainland China, told Interfax that more than 80% of domestic websites have fairly “big holes” in their networks at present, which would make it very easy for hackers to launch attacks and then even illegally take over the website. With such a frail network security situation in mainland China, Rising has launched a free network equipment scanning service for all domestic enterprises and administrative units, most of whose websites are still vulnerable. The service can be carried out under those enterprises’ and administrative units’ authorization, and will result in a sound network security & vulnerability report for site administrators. Anti-attack and anti-virus are separate issues facing websites, though many sites in China seem unaware of either one or both as a threat. In order to improve websites’ “anti-attack ability,” only installing anti-virus software is absolutely not enough, says Rising. The firm is encouraging website owners to buy enterprise-class firewall hardware, attack-testing and vulnerability-scanning products. In addition, they should also sign up a professional network-security-service company for constant tailor-made security services based on their individual network topology. Full Story
