Do you use it?

Are you planning to STOP using it?

I ask based on the recent Russia-phobia announcement that Kaspersky software 'may' be monitoring your internet usage - like Google, Facebook, GCHQ and the NSA don't.... :roll:

Personally I'm getting pretty pizzed off with all this anti-Russia rhetoric and concerned for the aggression and 'intent' that Western Governments seem to be having to incite conflict.

Is this Kaspersky issue yet another attempt to muddy the waters or do you consider it a genuine risk?

If its not Russia, Its China, tbh its the media that blow it out of all proportion, Everyone knows what everyone else gets up to - the modern age just means is easier to do it

I don't use it, but my take is that yes they could, but no they wouldn't.
They seem to be well respected in the field, and if they were caught out it'd be the end for them.
Like you say k-e, we all "trust" lots of companies from "our" side things.
Like Bob says it's the media

I have used it for years, get it free each year from Barclays.

I have no intention of stopping using it.

Got an email from Barclays today saying they were stopping it for all new customers!

I would be more worried about buying a Chinese Lenovo computer, as how do we know they haven’t put something in the chip to spy on the West? Ha ha
