Chinese search engines favor banks to stop phishing

In what is no surprise, the Chinese government has pushed and got the 10 big Chinese search engines to agree to put its banks 1st up in search results to try and drop down phishing attacks. The phishing attacks commonly happen when a person search s for there bank and mistakenly clicks a site/link that looks very much like the original banks link. from this they are asked to submit information which is then stored and sent back to the operators of the phishing scam. So its really no surprise that the Chinese government is doing this, they always tend to be in control of the internet and who does what and what its people can see and access. Source
