    News: Eugene Kaspersky is concerned...


    A Russian Cybersleuth Battles the ‘Dark Ages’ of the Internet
    by NEIL MacFARQUHAR JUNE 10, 2016
    MOSCOW — A sense of menace stirs right off the elevator on the fifth floor of Kaspersky Lab’s Moscow headquarters, where a small television screen displays cyberthreats occurring in real time around the world — a blinking, spinning, color-coded globe brimming with suspicious emails, malware and evil botnets that could be infecting a computer near you.

    That feeling of unease intensifies when Eugene V. Kaspersky — the stocky, garrulous, 50-year-old founder and chief executive of the global computer security company — begins to catalog possible threats: The computerized elevator you just left is vulnerable to cyberattacks, as are your smartphone and smartcar. Your bank, without question. Your electricity and water supplies could be at risk. Cybercriminals grow smarter, bolder and more elusive every year.

    “We are living in the middle cyberage, the dark ages of cyber,” said Mr. Kaspersky, whose modest corner office with glass walls overlooks a stretch of canal and a boat club. He has longish salt-and-pepper hair, a trim beard and a ruddy, tanned complexion. “Right now, it is more functionality, more technology, more services, but not enough security.”

    What about the security of Kaspersky software? I get Kaspersky Internet Security free from my bank in the UK. I asked their security team about the security of Kaspersky anti-virus software considering Kaspersky is a Russian based company and my bank doesn't see any security concerns. Anyway, who knows if US sourced software is any safer with possible security backdoors enabled by government agencies?

    The article wasn't necessarily about Kaspersky Security products - they are top notch products.

    The article is about the concern one of the top AV vendors has about the growing threats on the Internet and devices.

    When Kaspersky is concerned, I'm concerned ... but there's not much we mere mortals can do about it, other than maintain the virus protection on our machines.
