China should strengthen its internet security and international cooperation in the field, according to a report issued Wednesday by the National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Coordination Center of China in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan province.

According to the 2015 China Internet Network Security Report, the center received 126,916 reports on network security incidents from home and abroad last year, 1.26 times that of 2014. The three main targets of cyber attacks in China are government departments, financial agencies and basic telecommunication enterprises. And the three most common network security concerns are webpage counterfeiting, loopholes and webpage falsification.

In the past year the security protection level of China's basic telecommunication network improved; so is its domain name system's ability to resist server attacks. But China's industrial internet faces harsher security challenges, and the advanced persistent threat to China's important information system became more severe last year.

China's public internet security condition is generally stable. The number of terminals controlled by Trojans and botnets in China declined last year, and the security condition of the main telecommunication operators became better. But the number of personal information leakage and phishing rises.

The report urged the Chinese government to strengthen the regulation of security loophole disclosure and disposition mechanisms, strengthen the network security threat disposition movement and international cooperation in the field.

The report also predicts the cloud platform and big data's security protection ability in China will face big challenges this year, the Internet of things intelligent equipment will face more security threats and network fraud and racketeering in China will become more rampant this year.
