Baidu,Tencent Issue Joint Statement against 360
China's top 1 and top 2 internet companies Tencent QQ and Baidu
360 fights backTo the statement of the five companies, 360 responded immediately by issuing a counter-statement, claiming 360 was attached by Tencent due to its purpose of protecting users privacy". The statement said Tencent masterminded the statement for diverting public attention from its illegally scanning users privacy to attacking competitor. 360 said, Tencent is the originator of unfair competition in China's Internet industry. Privacy protection through the 360 and Microsoft Process Monitor have collected sufficient evidence to prove that QQ "security module" is not primarily used for killing Trojans, but illegal scanning computers of users for a variety of information of competitive products. With the 700 "super black lists", Tencent can easily copy popular products of others, then force the users to install their products bundled with QQ chatting tool to form a unfair strike on the competitors. "The 'super-blacklist ' details will be released by 360 at an appropriate time." 360 said. According to the latest figures from CNNIC, the number of Internet users in China rose to 420 million at the end this June, the largest in the world. According to Alexa traffic ranking, Baidu(www.baidu.com) ranks 6th and Tencent(www.qq.com) ranks 9th, 360(www.360.cn) ranks 265 in the world.
