Russia is also making moves to remove foreign software from its workplaces (at least in government facilities) but that is already known. It kinda makes sense to do the same for US. Its actually confusing to me why US doesnt have a good alternative like other people say

It's like the news wants to create hysteria and didn't research it, or did and didn't want to mess up their "OMG" report. Thanks for the info.,

Kaspersky is legit.

I've bought multi-year licenses from them recently~~~

Their Internet Security software is always ranked pretty high.

Being wary of their software makes sense and as cyber becomes the new battlefield of superpowers, you can't afford to ignore even small risks.

Still a better option than Norton though.

unless you're deliberately trying to infect your desktop or at risk to be targeted the built in protection by microsoft is enough from my experience.

This is actually a good thing imo. Kaspersky works directly with Russia intelligence agencies from what I've read.

The DNC isn't a government agency.

Some of the posts are getting really annoying to be honest in that they just clog up the entire thread with nonsense. I would rather nothing than trying to find good posts in a sea of nonsense.

Didn't one of the Kaspersky founders get arrested by the Russian government or something not long ago. I don't think they liked their work on finding who was hacking and creating viruses as it hit home.

I imagine you can never be sure but then if they ever got caught then it's over so why do it. Same goes for American tech companies.

Im struggling to figure out where they even use Kaspersky. Foreign products have been mostly banned from DoD and DoS for a while now.

They are probably the most popular russian product used frequently here, no?

Kaspersky is the best at what they do, just because they originate from Russia does not change that fact and/or make them less trustworthy. From a governmental perspective it makes sense not to use Kaspersky, but from a civilian point of view it makes no sense and would just be paranoia.
