Recently there have been some allegations of collusion with Russian state security aimed at Kapersky AV users.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-41580850
Israeli spies looked on as Russian hackers breached Kaspersky cyber-security software two years ago, US media report.
The Russians were allegedly attempting to gather data on US intelligence programs, according to the New York Times and Washington Post.
Israeli agents made the discovery after breaching the software themselves.
Kaspersky has said it was neither involved in nor aware of the situation and denies collusion with authorities.
Last month, the US government decided to stop using the Russian firm's software on its computers.
The Israelis are said to have notified the US, which led to the ban on Kaspersky programs.
I cant see why it took so long for Israel to notify the US if this intrusion was genuine, that alone makes me question the rest of the tale, most of us where aware of the recent advice given to US Govt employees to stop using Kapersky so why the delay ????
I smell a rat here but to be on the safe side folks use something thats neither Russian nor Israeli for your protection as both sides seem to feel its ok to spy on folks and steal private data with impunity and that is an attitude that should never be rewarded.
