Washington restricted use of Kaspersky products for government departments


According to the agency, the laboratory is suspected "of close ties with hostile Russian intelligence services accused of cyber attacks on the United States."

The company itself stated that it "has no ties with any government."

The company has never helped and will not assist any government in attempting cyber espionage. We were at the center of the geopolitical struggle, in which each side tries to use us as a pawn in its game,
said the representative of the "Kaspersky Lab."

Earlier, the Laboratory was accused of allegedly “developing a secret system for protecting against DDoS attacks, which establishes the location of hackers” upon the request of the FSB. The company rejected the accusation, saying that "they are cooperating with law enforcement agencies around the world, including Russian ones, by conducting technical expertise and analysis of malicious software when investigating cyber incidents." At the same time, according to the representative of the company, “the FSB has never received an official request with a proposal to create protection against DDoS attacks or to take part in a project to develop it”.

3 July, the company's founder, Yevgeny Kaspersky, said that he was ready to disclose the source codes of his programs to the American authorities. He also noted that he did not object to testifying in Congress.

      It seems that the US CIA simply, under the guise of accusations of Kaspersky of hacker programs, simply pulls promising applied developments from its scientific laboratory out of Kaspersky. Those. The US CIA acts in the interests of its own defense industry with the goal of industrial and scientific espionage on the part of the United States.
      Therefore, Kaspersky does not need to go anywhere in the USA! The CIA simply lures him from Russia to the United States! In the USA, Kaspersky will either be killed or arrested without fault!

          Eugene Kaspersky lives in Moscow. He loves skiing, thanks to which he met his second wife, often in the ski resorts of Italy and Austria. He is fond of kayaking and mountaineering. Willingly photographs and for hours demonstrates pictures to friends. He starred in a commercial for his antivirus along with Jackie Chan.

          Kaspersky Status
          In 2011, Forbes magazine estimated Kaspersky’s personal fortune at $ 800 million. In 2013, CEO magazine estimated his fortune at $ 1 billion.
          Kaspersky Lab, according to Kaspersky, has no investors, acts solely from its own resources, and invests all profits in further development.
          With the exception of Kaspersky Lab shares, Eugene has no significant investments: “I have a company, an apartment in Moscow and a BMW car. But apart from this, I have nothing else. ”

        Kaspersky doesn’t have to go anywhere in the USA!

        Tatyana, everything is in order, no one is going anywhere. And the statement to testify in Congress was made only to make sure that it wouldn’t come to that stupidly - because the mattresses don’t need it, from the word "absolutely." They blamed, blamed and ... everything, that’s enough for them. Excuses? Oh well, nafig ... The main thing is more "circles on the water." And one more thing: Kaspersky is the most “untwisted” Russian software brand in the West. Further ... well, you understand everything. hi

          And here is the answer from the Lab:
          Kaspersky Lab commented on US restrictions on its products
          “Apparently, Kaspersky Lab was drawn into a geopolitical struggle, where each side is trying to use the company as a pawn in its game,” RIA Novosti quoted the press service as saying.

          Kaspersky Lab emphasized that the company is private and has no political ties with any of the countries.

          In addition, the company recalled that its CEO Evgeny Kaspersky repeatedly proposed to meet with government officials, testify before the US Congress and disclose the source code for the audit.

          Earlier it was reported that US authorities have limited the use of Kaspersky Lab products by the government.

          On July 11, as reported by “Gazeta.Ru”, the company denied the Bloomberg information about alleged cooperation with the FSB and the development of special software for the department.

And the whole scandal was related to cooperation. Now imagine that Kaspersky will say directly that he is working with the FSB, but in light of the screech about our hackers, the mail of the democrats and others. A blow to reputation? Naturally. But do our security officers need this? Not.

    I wrote earlier that for the development of his DOS Windows application into a full-fledged and independent Windows-95 operating system in 1990-1994, Novosibirsk programmers were invited with about 30 people. In general, they received ridiculous money if we compare them with the volume of sales of this system on the market. In general, it was a salary of $ 100000 and a stake in Microsoft for the same amount. This was written by the weekly Kommersant, the most liberal publication. 30 people, Karl! 30 Russian people raised Microsoft capitalization at times, Bill Gates became the richest brow on earth with $ 45 billion at that time, and I’ll be flooded with the ears of great Americans, silicone valleys, blockchains, big dates and other crap in which I don’t I know.

      the word programmer can mean different things, if in Russia everything is so good with programmers, then where are the drones? yes, it’s drones, the whole problem is not to rivet the flying fuselage (in Russia it can be done in any design bureau in a month), but to make an intelligent control system (even those drones that are constantly under control have simple self-government systems that compensate for unexpected gusts of communication lag winds and so on, but the rudiments of AI are already needed for the shock drone), and these are the programmers, Buran is also the programmers.
      That army of "programmers" which are almost everywhere in their entirety are coders, namely there are very few programmers in the world and there is a huge demand for them, the USA is trying to rake them all from all over the world ...

          Creating toys is one thing, but creating operating systems, programming languages, control systems, is another (somewhere you need to know mathematics well, somewhere thoroughly know how hardware works, somewhere physics, somewhere everything is together). In Russia, there are such specialists, but UTB (like the whole world) a small percentage of the army of programmers and the problem is that it’s difficult to keep them because in the West the most intelligent give a lot of money + many talented people have ambitions and everyone wants to prove themselves, and the center (Silicon Valley) it is known where ...

    Petya is starting to clear up a bit. Until recently, on the machines of our company (not the smallest by the standards of Ukraine), Windows XP stood around. And everyone was happy. But in the winter, Microsoft representatives arrived. We checked what was on the machines, looked at the availability of licenses and set sail. And so, Petya happened ... Cars were taken for "maintenance", after which Seven with Simantek as an antivirus was found at all. Although, Hrishka was happy with everything before that.
