Intelligence agencies aren't too keen on the anti-virus software at the moment.
Graham Cluley explains:
The chiefs of the United States's intelligence agencies have publicly stated that they wouldn't feel comfortable running Kaspersky anti-virus software on their computers.
That's what they told a Senate intelligence committee yesterday, when specifically quizzed on the topic by Marco Rubio:
MARCO RUBIO: As has been widely reported, and people know this, Kaspersky Lab software is used by not hundreds of thousands, millions of Americans. To each of our witnesses I would just ask, would any of you be comfortable with the Kaspersky Lab software on your computers?
ANDREW MCCABE (Acting FBI director): A resounding no, from me.
MICHAEL POMPEO (Director of the CIA): No.
DAN COATS (Director of National Intelligence): No, Senator.
MICHAEL ROGERS (NSA Director): No, sir.
VINCENT STEWART (Defense Intelligence Agency director): No, Senator.
ROBERT CARDILLO (Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency): No, sir.
And I have to wonder - why?
