Why does the CIA create fake Kaspersky Lab certificates?

41
The head of the company, Kaspersky Lab, made an entry on Twitter, where he confirmed a message about the falsification by American structures of certificates of a Russian manufacturer of antivirus software. Earlier, the message that experts of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States were engaged in forging certificates "Kaspersky Lab", appeared on the site WikiLeaks.


From the post of Eugene Kaspersky:
We conducted a study of the Vault 8 report (the name of the material published on WikiLeaks) and confirm that the certificates issued under our name are fake. Our users, personal passwords and services remain secure and unaffected.


Why does the CIA create fake Kaspersky Lab certificates?


The material WikiLeaks reported that the CIA has developed a special platform that connects individual malicious programs. The platform that mimics the activity of other programs is hidden and is called Hive. It allows you to send information to the intelligence service servers. It would not have been possible to determine its affiliation with the CIA, since it “copies” the work of third-party software. However, now (after posting on WikiLeaks) everything secret has become apparent.

It is noted that the Hive source code contains elements that created the fake certificates of Kaspersky Lab, with the explicit goal of subsequently accusing Russian producers of allegedly interfering "in the internal affairs of the United States." If previously such advertisements were not supported by “evidence” by the United States, now the CIA decided to simply fabricate evidence for further presentation in a broad access mode. Did not work ...

        The bottom is still not reached. Ahead there is still the stuffing that the insidious Russian Kaspersky himself forged his own certificates. They do not care about logic and common sense.

          And he wants to go to Congressional hearings on cybersecurity. Doesn't he think that he can only return from there in 25 years?

      With these freaks, everything is clear. What to expect from our authorities? I would like to finally expect something, at least some kind of reaction. So that the amero-geeks have lost the desire to mock nasty and crap. In general, for such a setup, it’s not enough to fill the face, it wouldn’t hurt to put in kicks!

    In this case, the management of the company can only solve these problems through the courts. Kohl guys work in the United States, so be prepared for any dirty tricks.

    I would not be surprised if Kaspersky held negotiations with them before these statements, and simply did not agree. request

      You're right. And there was talk in the summer that they want to squeeze Kaspersky antivirus from the US market. "The US government imposed restrictions on the purchase of Kaspersky Lab products, citing security measures. This was preceded by a wide discussion of the company's possible ties with the Russian Federal Security Service. Kaspersky was not even helped by the proposal to transfer the source code of its programs to the US authorities." https://meduza.io/feature/2017/07/12/ssha-zapresc

    Under any law, even the United States, even Russia, forging a certificate is a criminal punishment and a direct violation of intellectual property. This is even if you do not take into account the goals of discrediting the whole state. The reaction, both from the side of Kaspersky and the state, should be as harsh as possible, right up to the convocation of the UN Security Council. It has already been practically proved that restraint and attempts to smooth out the conflict lead to an increase in the permissiveness of the American authorities.

        Like that. http://www.securitylab.ru/analytics/365717.php
        But in this case, the CIA created a whole system that is capable of passing off any virus program as legal software. Kaspersky is a special case. In fact, the entire Internet, including banking networks, personal data storage centers, etc., comes under attack. This is a threat to the whole world! Therefore, we must not mumble like our politicians, but convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.

              Very interesting, but what do you think is relevant now?

              This fake method is based on weak cryptographic protection of the md5 algorithm
              Therefore, if the signature hash is stored in md5, then the certificate can be faked.
              This has been known for a year since 2005, therefore no one now uses such certificates, in particular if you go to the Kaspersky website and look at the certificate, you will see that the SHA256 signature hash algorithm

              This algorithm does not have a vulnerability. Therefore, I wrote that I do not know how to fake a certificate

    A muddy story. I don’t understand how to forge a certificate at all.
    Therefore, I suppose that everything is much more serious: in fact, some root certification authority issued a certificate of the second category of protection (with confirmation of owner) to the CIA-shnik to the Kaspersky Lab. And that means that любые Certificates issued by American certification authorities are compromised.

    This is not the first time they have been mowing under Russian hackers. Last time WikiLeaks published how they use servers under Russian IP addresses.

    So who actually “cracked” the American election? am

    The CIA is for that and the CIA, in order to remove US competitors, to protect statehood by all means and methods. There is nothing to be surprised at, just well done. The work of the CIA is effective, and therefore, no upheaval in the United States does not threaten. And here, it seems, it starts again, it is not clear what.

    Last week, there was an info at the VO that in 2012, data from the NSA came to the Kaspersky server and, learning about what happened, Kaspersky himself ordered to destroy this message. In vain, he showed decency, he had to let the press go. And throw off the FSB .Although something to regret, I probably would have acted like Kaspersky, decency and an honest name it also means something in computer technologies!
