It was recently reported that the home computer of an NSA (National Security Agency) contractor was hacked using Kaspersky antivirus software. The incident happened back in 2015 but it had been brought to light about a month ago. It revealed that this vulnerability in the Kaspersky software could have been in massive scale. It was also suggested that not only was the Kaspersky Lab team aware of the hacks, but they assisted in them as well. Kaspersky Lab sent out an emailed statement refuting this and offering help to the U.S. in investigating the breach. However, with rising tensions between Russia and the U.S., there could be a connection between the Kaspersky Lab and Russian Intelligence Agencies; which can pose as threat to American consumers that have Kaspersky software.
The Digital Edge Security Team advises against using Kaspersky security products, which have deep access to system resources, may work as spying software as well as have possible ties to the Russian intelligence agencies.
