Kaspersky Antivirus Software Used by Millions Dubbed a National Security Threat by FCC

31 Mar 2022 10:30 AM | Anonymous

If you have not been paying attention to the news of the Russian-Ukrainian war, it probably is because you felt you were not affected. Unfortunately, that is not true for millions of computer users in countries all over the world. If you use Kaspersky antivirus software in your computer, please be aware that you should replace it... NOW!

Kaspersky antivirus software is produced by a Russian company. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has warned that many Russian-written software products have recently been modified to collect personal information about the user (name, address, email address, installed software, and more) and to possibly create damage to the computer(s) being used.

There is no evidence that Kaspersky has done this. However, if the Russian government should order such spying capabilities be added in the future, Kaspersky will have no choice but to comply with that order. 

Kaspersky's products have already been banned from U.S.-government owned computers for several years.

    Excellent advice. I read articles on what is best but each of them have so many ads. Currently use Norton but I do not need all of there promotional material. Any thoughts as to who is better than the rest and minimal ads.

      I have used ESET for years. You do have to pay for it, but not a lot, and it works well - no ads.
