Security for virtualized datacentres

More than 1,300 people have been detained in Shanghai after Chinese authorities continued to clampdown on internet gambling.

Two of those arrested on Tuesday were on a national list of "most wanted" and collared in connection with running online gambling services. Net cafes, night-clubs and homes were raided as part of the crackdown, reported Xinhua Online.

In January, police in China arrested 600 people and seized CNY23m (£1.5m) as part of a countrywide crackdown on illegal online gambling.

In all, some 220 people were detained in a series of raids on a "clandestine internet-based gambling company". Police claim the Taiwan-based gambling outfit had been working with criminals in China for almost a year. ®
