Russia Has Turned Kaspersky Software Into Tool for Spying

Russia Software'Kaspersky Lab Antivirus Ban in USA

According to The Times, Israeli intelligence officials who had hacked into Kaspersky's network alerted the U.S. about the Russian hacking, prompting the USA government to order the immediate removal of any Kaspersky software from government computers.

It said German government agencies could use software protection for clients and servers that is offered by CANCOM online GmbH, which works together with Trend Micro.

That led to a decision in Washington only last month to order Kaspersky software removed from government computers.

"Kaspersky Lab has nothing to do with the situation described in The New York Times or other media outlets and has no information about it".

Kaspersky Lab denied to the Times any knowledge of, or involvement in, the Russian hacking.

Eugene Kaspersky, a businessman and former Russian Defense Ministry official, founded Kaspersky Lab in 1997.

Now, a new damning report says that the functionality discovered in the software could not have been put there without the company's knowledge. "There is no way, based on what the software was doing, that Kaspersky couldn't have known about this", an official said. After 90 days, unless otherwise directed, they must remove the software, on the grounds that the company has connections to the Russian government and its software poses a security risk.

"There are no plans to warn against the use of Kaspersky products since the BSI has no evidence for misconduct by the company or weaknesses in its software", BSI said in an emailed response to questions about the latest media reports.

Even in this case, they offered no evidence that the Russian government was specifically targeting the USA, nor that Kaspersky knew about the intrusion.

The extensive system-wide permissions that antivirus software necessitates and the trust it demands of its users make Kaspersky's products an ideal target for governments wishing to spy on their adversaries. "Kaspersky Lab was not involved in and does not possess any knowledge of the situation in question, and the company reiterates its willingness to work alongside US authorities to address any concerns they may have about its products as well as its systems", told The Journal in a statement. "Kaspersky Lab has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyberespionage efforts", the company said on Tuesday.

USA intelligence agencies have determined that Russian President Vladimir Putin organized a vast digital influence operation to assist Donald Trump win the presidency, a charge Moscow still denies.
