Reply to post: Complicit

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



"It's likely that the Kaspersky detection of NSA tools was somehow responsible for FSB targeting the contractor's home computer, but it doesn't mean the company was complicit,"

Except that Kaspersky detects NSA tools in the wild, but does not detect FSB tools in the wild.

Come on people, let's be realistic about this, for all practical purposes Kaspersky IS FSB, just as the Russian Mafia IS Putin, although they are both formally separate and unrelated.
