China has arrested more than 15,000 hackers and cyber criminals. When you have almost 1,5 billion of your own citizens, this really seems like a meaningless drop in the ocean. Or, everything and anything has to be huge and impressive in China, including the number of hackers.
On the other side, there are quite raised eyebrows and suspicious faces that this battalion of arrested hackers is not going to end up in prison. What is that supposed to mean, exactly? Well, China has quite a notorious reputation for its numerous and merciless hacking teams.
It is not an unimaginable thing to witness Nikita scenario for Chinese hackers. It is better to work for the Chinese government or military things you are doing best, than to dream about computers from your cell in some God forsaken province. It is not much of a choice, is it?
So, what is China supposed to do, in order to gain our trust? Even if they arrest 150,000 hackers, we are still going to be suspicious, aren’t we? We sure hope China is doing some serious job in this field. Otherwise, hackers can easily hack the entire China one day. We are not exaggerating.
