Chinese Regulators Suspend Information-Sharing Deal with Alibaba Cloud

22 December 2021

    Chinese regulators have suspended their information-sharing partnership with Alibaba Cloud Computing - a subsidiary of the Alibaba Group, over accusations that the company failed to report and address a cybersecurity vulnerability.


    According to state-backed media reports, Alibaba Cloud did not report vulnerabilities in the open-source logging framework Apache Log4j2 to China's telecommunications regulator, according to a recent notice by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).


    As a result, MIIT has suspended its cooperative partnership with the cloud unit regarding cybersecurity threats and information-sharing platforms, to be reevaluated again in six months time, and possibly revised if internal changes are to take place within the company. 


    Needless to say, this is just the latest of measures already taken by Beijing to strengthen control over key online infrastructure and data in the name of national security.
