Every time I read something like this I feel that it's a positive step, however, there's so much more to tackle.

China Arrests 160 Over Online Identity Theft [bbc.co.uk]
Beijing authorities have arrested 160 individuals on charges of stealing personal information, according to the Chinese news site Sina.

Police have also shut down 13 online platforms that were alleged to have traded in stolen personal information.

It follows the arrest of 1,700 suspects in China on similar charges last month.

The raids are part of an ongoing crackdown on online identity theft in the country.
