Qinhoo 360 Company officially launched a free anti-virus software this July, which brought Qihoo 360 to the spotlight in the anti-virus software field.

But simultaneously, doubts about "inside story" of Qihoo Company have appeared.

On July 29th, an article titled "Story from a Retired Qihoo Employee" quickly spread to different Internet BBS. The article disclosed many problems such as "Qihoo is secretly collecting users' personal data".

As soon as the article appeared, it quickly drew netizens' attention, leading to tens of thousand's feedback. Though Qihoo Company argued such problems were forged by its rivals, the refutation did not work well.

Tu Jianlu, the PR director from Qihoo 360 said, "Ordinary netizens could not create such a stir. As we can see, an article has been uploaded or transferred to thousands of Internet forums in just a few weeks and seen tens of thousands of feedback……I believe there must be 'Cyber Mafia' manipulating this event.”
