Germany warns against Russian anti-virus use
Germany’s cyber-security authority has warned against using anti-virus software from Russian headquartered company Kaspersky.
The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) issued the statement in light of the conflict in Ukraine. Russian information-technology businesses could be spied on or forced to launch cyber-attacks, it said.
The BSI made no allegation of current problems with Kaspersky’s products but said the conflict in Ukraine and Russian threats against the European Union, Nato and Germany brought with them the risk of cyber-attacks.
