Kaspersky used in security breach?

(1/1)

asde1979:
The tools we use for security become tools to breach security. Allegations Kaspersky was used by hackers to lift confidential materials from NSA, although the issue is more about what the contractor was doing bringing the files home and using on his home computer... Shows how no matter how much work we put into I.T infrastructure, it just takes one employee with a USB stick to cause a big slip up.

"Russian government hackers lifted details of U.S. cyber capabilities from a National Security Agency employee who was running Russian antivirus software on his computer"
