Pentagon may be prohibited from doing business with Kaspersky, Moscow-based security software popular on home computers in the U.S.

The U.S. Senate is considering a bill prohibiting the Pentagon from doing business with Moscow-based Kaspersky labs, NBC News story.

Geek Squad has often sold Kaspersky, and I have used it on at least two Windows computers. Kaspersky seems to be one of the most pro-active companies in warning about possibly dangerous websites.  It also tends to give amateur sites lower safety ratings than do many other companies.

Update: July 23

The Washington Post reports on local governments using Kaspersky in an article July 23 by Jack Gillum and Aaron C. Davis, link here .
