HANOI, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam ranked 101st out of 193 countries with a score of 0.245 in the Global Cyber security Index (GCI) 2017 compiled by the International Telecommunication Union, while Singapore topped the ranking with a score of 0.925.
Vietnam fell 25 places due to the cyber attacks on the country's major airlines last year and the widespread Wannacry ransomware infections in May this year, Vietnam News Agency reported on Tuesday.
