In Britain, government agencies have banned the use of Russian antivirus software

41
In London, they distributed an official appeal to the heads of government departments and other institutions with state participation. The appeal refers to the inadmissibility of using Russian software in connection with its “danger. First of all, we are talking about anti-virus software produced by Russian companies.


Interfax gives a fragment of this message:
The National Cyber ​​Security Center at the UK Government Communications Center has directed all government agencies not to use such programs in systems related to national security.


In Britain, government agencies have banned the use of Russian antivirus software


It is emphasized that first of all, the “danger” for the British systems related to national security is represented by Kaspersky Lab products. Such a statement was made on the air of the BBC.

At the same time, none of the experts gave examples of when Kaspersky Lab products dealt a blow to the security of British government institutions. It was noted that it is not even about identified threats, but about “potential risks”. It is stated that Russian software "can steal personal data of users." This is said in a country whose intelligence services, together with the US, are stealing user data from around the world.

It is clear that this is the next step of the Western "partners" in terms of "dirty" competition and the continuation of the flow of Russophobia, pouring under any pretexts.

          Not only competition matters. It comes to the conclusion that strangers cannot be allowed into the information databases.

            And yet, what did Kaspersky annoy them with? His firmochka is private, right down to the bone marrow.
            Here, however, the Mossadites planted their informer to him, which is not difficult in other matters, there are entirely citizens with the fifth count working. The rumor went that Casper on the FSB
            "plowing." Can legs grow from here?
            By the way, I never used his "products."

      Not a royal thing. They have a prime minister - also that Russophobia.
      do not use such programs ...

      In this case, there is another attempt to harm the company, at the head of which is a Russian citizen and, as they wrote above correctly, unfair competition. I would like to advise the British to bother with this less, because in their opinion, Russian hackers are omnipresent, which means ...

    It’s possible, but it’s also an effective way to deal with cyber threats (to work on your own). It’s very dangerous to buy goods with a double bottom from an adversary. A hit on a dependent vulnerable network can be colossal. Everyone is in goodness because such attacks were not carried out in full force. Only fragments, and only the lazy one does not know about the arrays of extracted intelligence.

    This British passage is not quite clear. How strange it turns out. Is it possible that on the tin islands, and even in the mattress, programmers capable of creating an antivirus have ended? But what about the Gates essence? Is Casper better? Some kind of zrada turns out.

    Well it is necessary. We were banned from using western software three years ago (since the moment Snowden told me). Have they been waiting for so many years? Well stupid! laughing

    Not only the antivirus can collect information, but the operating systems themselves, browsers, applications installed in the system, search sites can monitor your activity, social networks can monitor your actions.

    In general, this is not a fight against threats, but an attempt to damage the reputation of the Russian IT business. Anti-Russian sanctions.
