“For Alibaba Group, hacking attempts have become common these days. But we are proud that our infrastructure can deal with any type of attack”, said Jack Ma the founder and former executive chairman of Alibaba Group.


Remember, these details were disclosed just after a week when another Chinese Telecom company Huawei( Trade banned in the United States) claimed that it is being subjected to 1 million cyberattacks per day.

Although the company sources remained tight-lipped on who launched the attack?; they assured that the incident was contained before any disruption took place.


Jack Ma disclosed that the cyberattacks were being averted by its website through Alibaba’s AI Intelligence. Ma suggested that the success story of foiling these cyber attacks conveys that machines were much superior to humans when it comes to mitigating risks related to malicious online behavior.
