Yu first accused Oriental Micro of lacking necessary permit to develop anti-virus software. Later, he arrested executives from Oriental Micro and made up and spread news accusing the company spreading computer virus. The news was carried by all major news outlets in China and angered millions of users. Eventually, Oriental Micro found its way to report the case to China's top prosecutor and the Ministry of Public Security which launched an investigation and arresting Yu."
