Founded on July 18, 2008, the Anti-Phishing Alliance of China ("APAC") is made up of domestic banks, securities institutions, e-business websites, domain name registries, domain name registrars, experts and scholars, serving as the only coordination organization for the purpose of solving the problem of phishing websites. At present, it has more than 500 member units. APAC has established a quick handling mechanism to address the problem. By stopping resolution services for phishing websites with a CN domain name or non-CN domain name or by giving warnings, APAC terminates the harm of such websites in a timely manner to ensure a trusted network. China Internet Network Information Center ("CNNIC"), the domain name registry in China, fulfills the responsibility of the secretariat of APAC.

At present, various phishing websites in the world have had a severe impact on online financial services and e-business development, jeopardized public interest and shaken the confidence of the public in using the Internet. Due to the features of the Internet, the cross-border distribution and hazard of phishing websites have become an intractable problem that draws the worldwide attention. Therefore, it is a top priority to stop the harm of phishing websites in a timely and effective manner by establishing a quick handling mechanism. APAC is devoted to establishing an anti-phishing coordination mechanism, facilitating the construction of a comprehensive management system, enhancing cooperation and exchange on anti-phishing efforts, sharing information in this regard, and organizing its members to jointly prevent, discover and tackle phishing websites.

APAC is the first non-governmental industrial coordination organization in China established for the sole purpose of solving this problem. By borrowing international experience and practices and focusing on the "short survival but great harm" feature of these websites, APAC has coordinated the efforts of all interested parties and established a quick handling mechanism against phishing websites so as to prevent any potential harm. It cracks down on phishing websites from the root of Internet application—domain name, aiming at constructing a trusted network.

To best safeguard public interest, APAC will first protect financial institutions such as major banks and securities institutions, famous e-business enterprises and online payment systems which are closely related to the property of the public. Phishing websites have frequently shown up in these fields, causing great losses.

In particular, APAC has set up an Expert Guiding Committee which is made up of experts and leaders to guide APAC in its work. The National Computer Virus Emergency Response Center and the National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team/Coordination Center of China act as the third-party technical validation institutions of APAC.

APAC is a non-governmental organization whose members include domain name registries, domain name registrars, banks, securities institutions, e-business enterprises and network security enterprises, and whose purpose is to discover and tackle phishing websites, especially those that pretend to be its members. So far, APAC has included more than three hundred financial institutions and dozens of e-business websites, as well as major domestic registrars of domain names.

The Secretariat of APAC is based at CNNIC, and is responsible for the daily operation, meeting convening and emergency handling of APAC.

Experts of APAC are reminding netizens to be cautious during online shopping and E-bank payment so as not to be harmed by phishing websites.
