Most Vietnamese gov’t websites could collapse any time, survey
The statistic was reported byÂ Internet security firm Vietnam Information Security Association during a conference on expanding the role of online government in Hanoi last Friday.Â
The association teamÂ randomly testedÂ 100 websites with the domain name .gov.vn. Nearly 3,700 security flaws were detected during the survey.
Around 58 percent of theÂ sitesÂ showed “serious security weakness” and around 20 percentÂ exhibited “high security weakness,” a representative from theÂ association said.

TheÂ Hanoi-based Internet security firm Bkav calculated thatÂ from the beginning of this year, six VietnameseÂ websitesÂ had been attacked every day.
