China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced plans to create a national data repository for information on cyberattacks and will require telecom firms, internet companies and domain name providers to report threats to it, effective Jan. 1, Reuters reports. The ministry said the platform will be able to track malware, vulnerabilities and content linked to “malicious” IP addresses. The plan also stated that MIIT would be liable for disposing of threats under the new rules. The announcement is the latest in a series of moves by Chinese authorities to guard against large-scale cyberattacks.
