The United Kingdom Banned Kaspersky Lab's Antivirus In Departments Responsible for the National Security
December 3, 2017 15:01


The United Kingdom has banned Kaspersky Lab's antivirus in departments that are responsible for the national security.

This decision was made because of the authorities' concern about the alleged use of the product as a reconnaissance tool of the Kremlin.  This is reported by the Financial Times. It is about institutions dealing with foreign policy, international relations and protection and owning confidential information. Letter sent by the authorities to these departments, contains the information stating that the popular software poses a risk.

In September, a similar decision was made in the United States of America. Then, all state institutions of the country were obliged to remove any Kaspersky Lab products from computers. In October, the company was accused of stealing the data of  the US intelligence agencies. The "Laboratory" rejected these prosecutions and said that these were political games.
