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.,
as a russian, i can tell you what the text on this picture says
"its a suitable software to use in government facilities and facilities that operate with protected (secret) information"
its absolutely nothing.
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
does whatever a
graphics horse does
Still a better option than Norton though.
The success of Kaspersky Lab hinges on the worldwide licensing of their software in anything from firewalls to sensitive telecommunications equipment. Their tech is everywhere even if you don't see the Kaspersky label on the tin.
This silent encroachment has been the subject of discussion in the intelligence community for a while. Even if Kaspersky Lab is not a willing and active tool of the Russian government, they are highly vulnerable to infiltration and manipulation by the Putin regime.
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.
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.
Been using Kaspersky since like 2005? I'm ready to transition, but need recommendations.
Can Win10 alone suffice for now?
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.
Majority of posts read like
Not every single action out of the Trump admin is some sleazy scheme.
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.
They are probably the most popular russian product used frequently here, no?
It is kind of weird that people use this specific Russian firm lol.
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.
Can you really trust cyber security coming out of Russia? Come on now.
