The Chinese are watching American businesses disable Kabasiji antivirus software
FBI warned the private sector to stop using Russian security company Kabasiji’s security software, saying it poses a serious threat to national security and that U.S. companies should remove Kabasiji from their systems as soon as possible. FBI has given priority to the energy sector, as well as to companies that use industrial control systems and SCADA systems. Bloomberg business week previously said that Kaba Keith and Russian intelligence agencies have more closely related cooperation than it claimed.
Senior U.S. government officials said the FBI’s goal was to get U.S. companies to remove Kabasiji from their computer systems as soon as possible, or to avoid using them in new products and other efforts.
The anti intelligence service of the US Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) warned at the beginning of this year, giving priority to the energy sector, as well as companies using industrial control systems and SCADA systems. While the US government is taking action, Russia is also trying to remove American Technology Corp, such as Microsoft’s operating system.
At the same time, “Bloomberg Business Week” (Bloomberg Businessweek) claimed that they saw the email “show Kabasiji laboratory with Russia’s main intelligence agency – Russian Federation Security Bureau (FSB) working relationship than publicly acknowledged much closer to” Kabasiji “laboratory confirmed that these mail is true”.
In response to the news, Kabasiji’s lab responded that they did not confirm the authenticity of the messages. Kabasiji Laboratory (Kaspersky Lab) a representative said the company and the government have not any “inappropriate”, and added, “the company often cooperate with governments around the world and law enforcement agencies, the only purpose is to combat cyber crime.”
