More concerns about Kaspersky and Russia in NY Times
The New York Times has an article today, “The Cyber Insecurity Company”, or with online title, “The Russian company that is a threat to our security”. That’s Kaspersky Labs.
Best Buy and Geek Squad today favor Trend Micro, but before they have bounced between Webroot and Kaspersky. But the article notes that companies that use Kaspersky will have their networks exposed to servers in Russia.
That probably doesn’t matter to home users, no matter how paranoid you are about Putin or Ukraine or Chechnya. But it would matter to most international companies, or to anyone that keeps user PII on his servers.
DOD is no longer allowed to use Kaspersky.
