Russian spies used Kaspersky AV to hack NSA staffer, swipe exploit code – new claim

It would be nice to believe Kaspersky's strident denials. But: given that in other arenas there is virtually no separation between the Russian government objectives and "private" enterprise, with private enterprise alternately stroked and smacked by the government depending on requirements and the level of enthusiasm for government shown by private enterprise, how likely is it that Kaspersky exists in a magic bubble, strangely immune to threats of "taxation problems" and all the other useful levers available to the government?
