In order to profit from illegal interests, the development and production of false health code software was uploaded to Internet platforms for public sale... In June of this year, the Guangdong Public Security Agency detected a case of the development, production and sale of false health code software on the Internet, captured the software producer, Feng Fong Hao, and seized the software manufacturer, in accordance with the law, to purchase more than 20 users. This is one of the three typical cases of criminal activity against the production and sale of false anti-epidemic software published by the Ministry of Public Security on 8 August. In recent days, in the context of Operation 100 Days of Public Security in the summer of the country’s public security organs, the public security services have taken a decisive stand to detect a number of cases involving the development, production, distribution, and downloading of false anti-epidemic software, and to eliminate the risks associated with the disease in a timely manner. In response to recent cases of Internet-related offences, the Security Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security has attached great importance to the deployment of public security organs in Guangdong and elsewhere to carry out in-depth investigations in accordance with the law. It has found that individual suspects in conflict with the law have developed on the Internet software such as the production, sale and sale of false “big data trip cards” and “health code” to help others to falsify information on disease-related certificates and to display it on a fake health code page in the mountains in order to deceive quarantine workers and seriously interfere with the prevention and control order of the epidemic. At present, the public security authorities have captured 12 false software developers and have investigated a group of false software downloaders in accordance with the law. Two other cases in the three typical cases that have been published are the one in which a flight developed a false vaccination trip card and a health code software case and the one in which a Fong-Hau developed a false health code and sold it online. In June of this year, the Guangdong public security authorities detected a case of counterfeiting of a health code using a false health code application, and captured a person using a false health code. It has been found that Wei and Wen Hae have obtained false health code App programs from Internet platforms and used them on mobile phones, tampering with information on their travel cards and disrupting the Covid-19 Pandemic anti-control order. In July of this year, the Guangdong Public Security Agency detected a case of the development of a false quarantine travel card and health code software, captured a former flight of the software producer and investigated the purchase of software for more than 100 users in accordance with the law. In order to escape nucleic acid detection restrictions and display computer technology, it was found that a flight had developed the above-mentioned false quarantine trip card and health code software, which was posted on an Internet platform for downloads, seriously disrupting the control work of Covid-19 Pandemic. The relevant head of the Internet Security Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security stated that the public security organs would press ahead with the “100 Days of Activism” in the summer to combat security, maintain a high level of pressure on all types of Internet-related offences, and firmly uphold the order of prevention and control of the epidemic and the life and health of the population. The public security organs have advised that the development, distribution, and downloading of false disease-related software not only seriously interfere with the normal order of disease prevention and control, but are also suspected of criminal offences, and have requested the general public to raise awareness of the need to resist illegal and criminal acts and to work together to maintain the order of disease prevention and control.
