SCOLD WAR: Kaspersky drags Uncle Sam into court to battle AV ban

Re: can't blame them

And what you think about "submit sample files" and "cloud protection" in Windows Defender? I'm surprised that Kaspersky has not built their defense around defaults foisted by MS onto majority of Windows users (all the while Cortana rummages through files to better "assist you"). It's hard to tell how easily identifiable was the source, maybe it's just the guid for the system the file originated from but - as recent reports seem to imply - data anonymization does not work anyway. And while I understand the reason it's done, I don't condone these practices (sample submission), but pointing finger at K appears politically motivated distraction that inflicted serious financial damage (likely put them out of business anywhere within US sphere of influence) and no business outside umbrella of US bully agencies can survive this type of attack. Unlikely even WTO would help (guess what side it's likely to take).
